Still Alive started writing his name on the walls in 1989 at the age of 11. He spent his teenage years on a skateboard listening to punk music and then found himself propelled into hip-hop culture through tag, rap and breakdance.
His taste for creation led him to the art school in Biel, where he began to focus seriously on visual arts and graffiti. Still Alive and his crew took the local scene to a new level and in 1997 founded the internationally known non-stop magazine. They travel regularly around the world, from New York to Barcelona and Milan, while playing a leading role in Bern in the 2000s, where they developed a singular and recognizable style in the Swiss capital. After a stopover in Zurich and in Tel Aviv, Still Alive moved to Africa. He found a family in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, created and hosted a hip-hop show on local TV and also worked as a DJ.
He returns to Bern with his family in 2018 and unites young and old in the spirit of “Peace, Love, Unity and Having Fun”. Still Alive left his mark on trains and in the street, and over the years he has developed his own illustrative aesthetic. Today, he transmits his naive aesthetic through comics published in various graffiti magazines as well as impressive murals or colourful canvases.
