BILLBOARDS HACKER was born in Provence. Passioned about skies and the light at its source, he studied at Atelier des Beaux-Arts in Paris and learn Trompe L’oeil painting at Painting Superior Institut Van Der Kelen in Brussels. He move to New York in 2003, and start to hack advertising billboards to show some skies about Climate Change. His Artist nick name became evident: Billboards Hacker. In 2010 he is recipient of Art Omi international Artists Residency and then he start to push it further, making 2000 square feet fake billboards.
In 2013 looking o the other side of the spectrum he came with the idea of using the cat, referring to different civilisations where the cat symbolically was already here to protect and watch after the humans. Mixing Trompe l’Oeil and his experience in photography, he started to do paste ups on lower part of the walls in New York, Paris, Medellin and Athens. Maybe you’ll get the chance to see around the corner of a street, the look of these cats, the looks of these guardian angels.
