Poes started tagging in 1998 when still in highschool, and made of the labyrinth of La Défense his playground. He was brought up inside hip-hop culture, his childhood filled by comics and mangas’ heroes.
His relentless activity as a diehard graffiti artist had him travelling Europe with an unquenchable will. He painted to the four corners of earth, accumulating the encounters, from Oslo to Istanbul, and from Berlin to Belgrade. Poes seeks to develop a world where dreams are predominant; his personal background makes it possible for him to tell stories through a patchwork of multiple pictorial references with colours in the service of narration. Trading his sprays for paintbrushes, Poes uses humour and irony to create works like poetic odes, reflecting a daydreamed society.
He is one of the regular guests at Jardin Rouge, its las t serie is about capitals sins; The artist uses the Greek, Roman and Sumerian myths to make reapper our animality, our vices and our leaning through a tender and amused eye.
