Elysée is a French artist born in Lille in 1984. Coming from the graffiti scene, he began his first productions around writing and spray paint illustrations in 1998, in urban atmospheres such as Brownfields, abandoned places in the Lille suburbs.
Always on graphic axes playing on speed, volume, light mixing graphic textures while striving to find visual harmony, especially in these places, abstract figurative, 3D / wild-style, Skayzoo always uses the same basis of work: the spray paint.
Today, he is moving towards more traditional paintings, and watercolour was a revelation as much as the brush, apart from the spray paint, knew nothing else…
