ANKHONE : Artist & Art Director 


 

At the beginning of the 90s, ankh started doing graffiti on the walls of his beautiful native city of Grenoble, nestled at the foot of the Alps. It is this mode of expression that led him to the benches of a graphic school, the École Superieure d’Art Appliqué in Troyes. Mastering these newfound institutional techniques, he gradually transposed his pictorial and graphic work to painting, without ever breaking the link to the graffiti culture that motivated this progression. Well versed in graphic design, illustration and painting, he uses all these mediums to represent what he calls “poetry in motion”.  In 2001 he joined the reputed Parisian collective, 9e Concept, and later on worked as event coordinator for Orange Telecom. He has also been art director for Graff-It magazine as well as for the fragrance brand Confinluxe. Whether it’s on his canvas or at the workplace, he has a passion for detail and a commitment to quality.
