I cut my images from black paper with an X-Acto knife. Everything is connected. It is all one piece of paper, yet now it holds a story.
Grenoble based artist, working with STENCILS and various other artistic techniques.
I mainly draw people's faces with spray acrylic paint using a technique called stencil.
I like to cut. Stenciling is a technique that allows me to reproduce my images as many times as I want in different sizes and very quickly. It is also a very simple technique that is available to anyone, which makes it a technique of action, of wanting to do, of carrying out an idea.
I like to do something appropriate to the space and for that it is necessary to take measures and generate a spreadsheet that adapts to the place, that takes time. In the process of the cuts I found a kind of therapy, of meditation, like a mantra - something repetitive that at the same time is new - that fascinated me and that I cannot stop doing.
The son of ‘Exit Through the Gift Shop’ star Mr. Brainwash, Hijack, grew up in a world surrounded and inspired by renowned street artists such as Invader, Banksy, and Shepard Fairey. He was able to observe first hand the creative processes of some of the world’s most prolific and successful street artists. He learned how to set up his own studio, how to approach a large-scale mural, and even how to stealthily--albeit illegally--put up stencil art.
