"Smile maker & scribbler & Street artist & Spray painter and Designer"
In the 90s, Kekli began painting through hip-hop culture via graffiti painting. Over time, a character takes an increasingly important place in his work, the "Boyo", originally a yellow head, slanted eyes and a large frozen smile.

Today he has fun mixing everything: styles, techniques and supports.
He draws, stencils, glues and paints his characters with broad smiles on the four corners of the streets of our cities, paying tribute to the heroes of his childhood and the icons of pop culture while declining a writing and a set of graphic modules of his own.
These smiles try to make other smile, to generate an answer, a smile of the passer-by, to get him out of his routine even for a few seconds.
Smile!
