Mist (b. 1972) dedicates himself completely to sculpture and painting in his studio in Montpellier, France where he lives today. Mist discovered graffiti along the railroads of the RER (Regional Express Rail) in the late 80s. Standing out from his competitors in 1991, he exhibited with Futura, Keith Haring, and Jean-Michel Basquiat at the Musée National des Monuments Français. In 1998 he developed his work of sculpture and realized his first character in volume.
Mist is recognized as the pioneer of the so-called "designer toys.“ His vinyl toys such as Orus, Malus, Lucius, and many more, are collected all over the world. The specialists place him in the world's top five artists’ side as Kaws and Futura.
Today, Mist dedicates himself completely to the sculpture and to the painting in his studio in Montpellier where he lives today. The sharp, edgy, and clear lines nevertheless remind me of his wildstyle pieces in the streets of Paris.
Anyone wearing French graffiti artist MIST’s art on one of multimedia fashion brand Tango Hotel’s basketball shorts or t-shirts is certain to get stares. In one of Tango Hotel’s Instagram posts, the brand featured the quote: “People are going to stare. Make it worth their while.” It’s near impossible not to linger on the multicolored swooshes and swirls of MIST’s canvases. It’s the kind of graffiti that undulates in front of your eyes. “I’ve always been interested in letters and characters, and sketching makes you evolve fast if you stay focused,” MIST said of his style. MIST creates canvases you can lose yourself in.
