Wxyz was born in Paris in 1980, he grew up and still works today in eastern Paris.
He owes his artistic awakening to the observation, from a young age, of wall inscriptions. Since 1996, he has painted many walls, mainly in Paris area.
Since then, he enjoys transforming letters and looking for new ways to draw Wxyz with ‘all the colours of the alphabet’ as he enjoys telling the children.
In his works, the letter is more than a pseudonym, it serves as a pretext for the exploration of colours and shapes, as a skeleton to abstraction.
Wxyz took part in numerous collective exhibitions and had 2 solos exhibitions in Paris in 2015 and 2020.
His last group exhibition took place in Paris in 2020, at the VAO exhibition, alongside big names in street art such as Jonone, Atlas, Arnaud Liard, Jerome G. Demuth, Apostle or Lek.
