A product of modern-day urban culture, Louis Bottero has evolved within the graffiti movement for over 10 years. His artistic reflection started in the streets with the demanding, painstaking work of calligraphy.
The energy of this urban space, with which he has learned to live and converse, is today the basic inspiration for his pictorial work, marked by the spontaneity of his gestures, graphic impulsion and instinctive lines. This approach results in the creation of complex works teeming with a multitude of details and symbols often underpinned by his character, uninhibited and liberated from all codes and influeces.
Very much involved in the artistic scene of modern urban art, he works and exhibits in Paris and Berlin and regularly performs live painting. In particular, he exhibited at the Fondation EDF in Paris, as part of the Graffiti 2014 Competition, and on the other side of the Atlantic, at Arsenal, Montreal’s modern art centre, where he represented French urban art at an international exhibition alongside Jérôme Mesnager.
In 2015, he will be artist in residence at Paris’s Cité Internationale des Arts.
