Franco-American artist, having grown up between the South of France and Los Angeles, Sowat vitet works in Paris. His artistic journey began along the railway tracks in Marseille, at the end of the 90’s, with the practice of graffiti. During his teenage years, he spent his summers in California and discovered chollo writing (calligraphy used by Mexican gangs) through the work of Chaz Bojorquez, a reference in the field. From then on, Sowat endeavours to appropriate this style until he develops his own language. From Marseille to Paris, Sowat has for more than twenty years multiplied in situ interventions - legal or not - surrounded by members of his crew, the Da Mental Vaporz, with whom he travels France, Europe and then the globe to create frescoes and monumental exhibitions. Recently, it is with Lek, a major figure in Parisian graffiti, that he has developed a four-handed work mixing archaeology, paintings, ephemeral installations and experimental films.
