" On FaceBook, if you are offered to become your friend, there is no "click" to refuse. Hence the idea of this slogan (from 2003) that I have stuck a lot in the street, always refusing to be on FB. Since the lockdown, I've been on FB..." SP 38

Sylvain Perier, known as SP 38, is a French painter born in 1960 in Coutances, Normandy. At the beginning of his career, this international figure of street art, poster artist and performer, has produced works in many countries.

He lived in Paris from 1981 to 1995. First settled in the Saint-Germain-des-Prés district, he moved around a lot and was active in many artistic squats: CAES, Boinod, le Garage 53, Europaint, Trévise, la Forge de Belleville, Turquetil1, rue du Dragon, rue Blanche, la Grange aux Belles... He is also one of the main animators of the underground artistic movement Zen Copyright which includes, among others, the artists Pierre Davis-Dutreix, Momo, Pedrô!, Yarps, Ed. Néant and Myster X. In 1985, SP 38 took part in the first gathering of the graffiti and urban art movement in Bondy (Île-de-France), on the initiative of the VLPs, in the company of Blek le rat, Jef Aérosol, Miss Tic, Banlieue-Banlieue, Speedy Graphito, Nuklé-Art, Futura 2000, Epsylon Point... In 1987, he was one of the 95 artists gathered in the exhibition "Free Art, l'année Beaubourg" at the Free-Time in rue Saint-Martin, organised on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the Centre Pompidou, with, among others, Monique Peytral, Jean Starck, Robert Combas, Miss Tic, François Boisrond, Lolochka, Jérôme Mesnager, Henri Schurder, Daniel Baugeste, Jef Aérosol, Ody Saban, les VLP, Pascal Barbe, Paella Chimicos, Epsylon Point, Banlieue-Banlieue, Rafael Gray, Frédéric Voisin...

During the 1990-1991 academic year, he met the future ethnologist Noël Jouenne, who reserved the starring role for him on the cover of his master's thesis entitled "Squats d'artistes et artistes squatters à Paris, étude d'ethnologie urbaine" (Artists' squats and squatter artists in Paris, a study of urban ethnology). This pioneering investigation in urban ethnology retraces the daily life of squatter artists and their different ways of living during this period. SP 38 holds an important place in it.

SP 38 has spent a lot of time on rue Dénoyez in Belleville, in the 20th arrondissement of Paris, where he covered the walls with his posters and paintings and exhibited in the Frichez-nous la Paix gallery. He was very much involved until the end of this emblematic place of Parisian graffiti, during the summer of 2015.

In August 1995, he moved to Berlin, the city that "represented everything that was possible in street art". There he found artistic squats: Tacheles, Acud, Prora in Rügen, the Blühende Landschaften gallery, Stattbad. He stuck posters with ironic slogans such as "Vive la bourgeoisie", "Vive la crise" on the city walls. Since 2008, SP 38 has been actively participating in the literary and artistic adventure "Instin" initiated in 1997 by the French writer Patrick Chatelier, by sticking his "INSTIN" posters on the walls of many cities around the world.

In 2019, SP 38 still lives in Berlin and continues to travel the world to stick his posters, stickers and exhibit his work.

This artist is exceptionally presenting his works on KAZoART as part of the Street Art Solidarity Sale to benefit Emmaus International.
