The city is a source of considerable inspiration for him. In his youth, he goes down in the metro to make tags, accompanied by his adopted brother, a member of the Black Dragons. The works in the Buildings series, inspired by New York skyscrapers, illustrate both his fascination with the United States, the city, its architecture and his " need to build oneself, to rise up ". At the same time, he also made numerous cutouts and collages. He meets Yvaral (Vasarely's son) who advises him to include his practice of collage in his graffiti. Gradually, he freed himself from collage to devote himself to painting and sculpture.

A dazzling success

In 2009, he acquired his fame thanks to his One Dollar sculptures and he is consecrated among the most talented sculptors under 30 years of age in the world.
