French graffiti artist Astro comes from the northern parisian suburbs where he started graffiti painting 10 years ago. His style has evolved from elaborate graffiti writing to fatcap arabesques he masters like no one else.
He loves his urban environment and could not live in the countryside. However, he sometimes needs to escape the city to immerge himself in his paintings. That’s when he goes to his studio in the Burgundy region.
I went to visit him there, in a little village surrounded by a magnificient rolling countryside, while he was preparing for his solo show at Nunc! Gallery in Paris (Jan 8-Jan 31, 2015).
