The street artist Sean Hart contacted us for a review of his great artwork on StreetLove. So we are happy to present him here.
We first discovered his work, during an open air exhibition, in a great street art area in Lyon X-Rousse, especially with his Tintin piece.
StreetLove the ARTIST
French artist, born in the 80’s, he works openly and Sean Hart is his real name.
He started with graffiti, when he was 13 years old.
He’s working alone, but always open to the idea of collaborations.
When is not on the streets, he works with a theater company called LZD – « Lézard dramatique » in French. He is a filmaker and a set designer.
StreetLove the ART
He is mostly working on the streets, because he doesn’t have a workshop. His inspiration comes from what he lives, his meeting with people, whether they’re famous or not, like: George Orwell – Jim Jarmusch – Jean Luc Godard – Mohamed Ali – Kitano – Antonioni – John Cassavetes – Tupac Shakur – Bob Marley – Jimli Hendrix – Malcom X – Nina Simone – Charles Mingus – William Blake – Jim Morrison – Antonin Artaud – Huey Newton – Jean Michel Basquiat – Joy Division – Lauryn Hill – Dead Prez – Léo Ferré – Chris Marker….
He still has a memory of his first graffiti, on F.N posters, with a metallic blue spraycan, and he remembers having written in French: » Nick les Fachos ». This was during the day, and after that he ran very fast…
