Painting created by FAT on canvas with paint.

About FAT:
Born in Paris in 1991, this young artist graduated first from a professional qualification in photography. He quickly worked on a series of workshops and exhibitions projects, gaining experience.

He has been actively painting since the 2000s, winning his spurs in the street alongside artist Fast. In early days, he used to mainly practice lettering, but was already mastering photography and painting. In the works of FAT, spray paint mixes up with posca and acrylic.

The characters of his childhood accompany him in the underground railways network. Tom & Jerry come down at to visit the Villiers station, and Porky Pig visits Vincennes. Cartoons which belong to the imaginary of the artist’s generation, born in the 1990s.

Although he has been primarily practising his art in the street or in the subway, Fat pays attention to details. The figures he creates are arranged in front of a detailed background, alternating between drips and lettering which he is still working with. The colours are bright and highlight the protagonists, removing any context.

The artist also creates stories for his cartoon heroes. On road signs, stations, or subway maps, they are accompanied by spray cans in the image of their author. Popeye swapped his can of spinach and Snow White her poisoned apple for a spray can. A swap full of meaning because the artist uses symbols which belong to the universe of childhood and replaces them with an artistic tool, his expression tool.
