SupaKitch was born in 1978 in Paris. Deriving from his artistic career he becomes a globetrotter, therefore he works in Biarritz, Paris, Los Angeles and New York. With his Asian, indigenous-Indian and pop-romantic inspired universe of imagery he has already ornamented walls globally.
Raised with mangas and hip-hop culture, passionated by art and music since his childhood, SupaKitch found in the Streets a large choice of mediums and sources of inspiration that flourish in his work. His first graffiti dates back to 1990. In the early 2000s when he began to present his works to the public, the name SupaKitch was born. A very interesting and successful collaboration with Carhartt and its “Tour D’Amour” in 2006 allowed SupaKitch and other artists, as Brendan Monroe, Wayne Horse and Koralie to paint murals in some of the brand’s stores across Europe; such as Dusseldorf, Copenhagen, Paris, San Sebastian and Lisbon. As a fashion lover, SupaKitch together with his wife Koralie, created their own clothing collection, Metroplastique, and won the prize “Young Entrepreneur of Fashion” in 2005. At the time he started collaborating with art galleries in Paris, Miami, Taipei as well as Taiwan.
SupaKitch is a complete artist brimming with ideas; he has created his own universe with Asian, pop-romantic and musical influences accompanied by anthropomorphic creatures. The SupaKitch exhibition at Kolly Gallery shows new level of maturity which is visible in his artwork and also in the materiality.
SupaKitch is not only an artist on canvas and resin but also on skin. His tattooing skills are globally well known and SUPA-desirable!
