Artist, Los Angeles

I teach art at Long Beach State. I talk about art on KBeach radio. I've always been interested in "portraits" and "identity." I've used paintings, interviews, robots and now networked media to explore these themes.

Blek le Rat goes Dancin!
Blek le Rat, born Xavier Prou in Boulogne-Billancourt, Paris in 1952, was one of the first graffiti artists in Paris, and has been described as the “Father of Stencil Graffiti”. Wikipedia

1981 to 1983 the beginning of the stencil graffiti art .I had the idea to use stencils to make graffiti for one reason. I did not want to imitate the American graffiti that I had seen in NYC in 1971 during a journey I had done over there.I wanted to have my own style in the street… I began to spray some small rats in the streets of Paris because rats are the only wild living animals in cities and only rats will survive when the human race will have disappeared and died out.
