Born in 1978, ARTIS.94 or "Jérôme F." is a self-taught painter.
Influenced since always by Hip Hop culture, he signed his first fresco in the mid-90s. In love with shapes, curves, matter, he tries different techniques, from oil to acrylic through Body Painting, charcoal and bomb, he decides to use them all in his works.
Self-taught, he learns, tries and approaches different ways of putting his ideas on canvases, walls and various objects, both unusual and everyday objects.
After giving painting lessons for associations, he takes the step and realizes his first exhibition in 2003, followed by many others afterwards. Without any pretension, he exhibits his work in living places, associations, charities as well as in famous galleries such as ARTELIE located on the right bank in Paris.
He himself defines his style as a mixture of graffiti and "self", his ideas can come to him in the street as well as in front of master paintings. Artis refuses nothing in his works, collage, materials, recovery and everything that passes through his hands. Today specialized in artistic decoration and realization of canvases, he blossoms in his creations and the requests which are made to him.
