Tilt is an internationally recognized traditional graffiti artist, originating from Toulouse in South France. A self declared “graffiti fetishist”, he learned his trade in the streets and on trains as a teen. In the time since he did his first tags on a skateboard ramp back in ’88, his ensuing career has been nourished and influenced by extensive travel.
Tilt incorporates both primitive lettering and more complicated 3D, wildstyle, characters with an emphasis on both strong colors and high impact shapes. Remaining close to the classic hip-hop graffiti ideology, Tilt focuses on the stylization of his name. Subsequently rendering the majority of his work in “throw-up” bubble letter style. However abstract the medium, his work will always center on graphic forms and urban art.
Tilt lives and works in Toulouse.
He is currently participating in the Young International Artists Art Fair in Paris. Tilt's installation piece for Galerie WallWorks at the fair is rather spectacular. See images below. And make sure to check out his artwork on FreeWay Editions and his website.
