The artist has become an influential figure in the Parisian street art scene and has inspired many other artists. He continues to create new works of art and has exhibited his work in galleries around the world.
In the current exhibition you can find iconic series that Nasty established throughout his career. The artist began to kidnap outdated or unused subway signs, which he transformed into artful objects using his spray cans and his particular lettering style. In addition, he found his creativity especially in spraying metro plans from Parisian subways. Thus he gave the streets, trains and subways some new calligraphic style and colorful life. From early on Nasty recognized the high potential of the spray can as the ideal object for re- and up-cycling, but at the same time he knew how to turn the presumed leftover of graffiti into a nostalgic cultural asset and piece of history. Who knew that spray cans would develop into iconic symbols and insignia representing the graffiti art movement? Still using the classical materials such as metro maps, signs, tiles and flat pressed spray cans and his notorious calligraphic lettering he keeps the graffiti spirit alive and yet comes up with new as well as unique pieces.
