It was at the end of the 1980s when Mist discovered graffiti along the railroads of the RER (REGIONAL EXPRESS RAIL) while going to a graphic art school in Paris. Captivated by what he saw, he created his first graffiti in 1988. His paintings, with their slightly acid colors and wildstyle shapes, leave a lasting impression. Very quickly, Mist became recognized as one of the most talented graffiti writer.
In 2001, with his label Bonustoys, he began to create pieces of art in the form of toys and figurines. Because of that endeavor, he is one of the pioneers of what we now call “designer toys” – small sculptures made from vinyl that are sold in specialty toy shops and found in collections all over the world.
Mist lives and works in Montpellier, France.
