TILT has left his mark in the same number of countries in the world as the number of years he has been painting, which amounts to over two decades.
A self-declared graffiti addict, he uses throw-ups as a form of simple and efficient calligraphy with which he decorates walls and urban areas in the city, as well creating an aesthetic identity which has marked his work within exhibition spaces. His graphic style has revolved around popular cartoons and elements from the audiovisual pop culture.
In 2010, after his individual exhibitions in Paris, Montpellier, and his collectives throughout Europe, in 2011 Tilt participated in the ‘Pictures on Walls’ program as well as the collective ‘Santa’s Ghetto’ exposition which Banksy organizes each year.
Maintaining his loyalty to Montana Colors, this year, 2012, he has chosen Montana Gallery Barcelona as the location for his first individual exposition in Spain. In stained glass, the French artist has found a new medium on which to present his distinctive bubble letters. Mixing paintings on methacrylate and drawings with Colorex, Tilt manages to create illusions of light which bring a new air to his work.
Opening: Thursday the 24th of May from 8 pm. Exhibition from the 25th of May until the 7th of July 2012.
Montana Gallery. C/ Comerç, 6. 08003. Barcelona.
