Born in Paris in 1972, Mist discovered his passion for graffiti along the rails of the RER during his adolescence. He studied graphic arts at the Ecole Estienne, where he honed a particular style based on lettering and classic characters. At a young age of 19, he participated in the exhibition “Graffiti Art” (1991) at the Musée National des Monuments Français alongside such international artists as Keith Haring, Futura, Rammellzee, and Jean-Michel Basquiat.
The abstract universe of Mist is inspired by the letters of his pseudonym, which is deconstructed in order to go beyond the traditional representation of lettering. However Mist does not limit himself to abstract compositions. A return to figurations can be seen across some of his paintings and sculptures, establishing a link between the world of his paintings and the plastic universe comprising his art toys. Recently, Mist revealed a new facet of his talent, by contributing two monumental frescoes to the cities of Montpellier and Rennes.
