FALCO

Falco  is  a  self - taught  young  artist  coming  from  Annecy,  French  Alps.

At  the  age  of  15  to  18,  he  first  started  to  spread  his  nick  FALCO  through  custom  stickers  or t-shirts  and  ended  up  into  a  graphic  design / art  degree.  After  that,  he  joined  a  fine  art  school  that  he  left  3  weeks  later  because  he  was  too  frustrated  to  have  teachers  holding  the  top  of  his  pen  while  he  creates.  He  feels  the  need  to  express  himself  without  filters  and  share  his  work  otherwise  than  through  a  screen.  That's  how  he  came  to  cut  out  his  first  stencil  and  made  his  firsts  pschitt-pschitt  in  the  street  in  2019.

Involved,  he  speaks  mainly  by  cutting  drawings  from  paper  but  also  through anything  he  gets  his  hands  on  by  shaking  up  codes,  updating  iconic  images  with  a  wry,  satirical  or  quizzical  tone.  Fascinated  by  conceptual  art  and  Duchamp’s  ready-mades,  he  loves  to  play  with  the  definition  of  art :  What makes  art ? What  are  its  limits ?
