Biography

Based in France, ORÉ began to paint graffiti in 1989. For a decade, he tagged cities across Europe. Traveling in Mexico in the 2000's, he discovered Quetzalcoatl, the Aztec god which is portrayed as a feathered serpent. This mythological icon became an essential feature of his pictorial universe.

You can find his Quetzalcoatl pasted up in the streets of 40 cities all over France and the world, including: Athens, Barcelona, Berlin, Brussels, Dublin, Hamburg, London, Los Angeles, Mexico, Paris, San Francisco, Tokyo, Vancouver.

In addition to his paste up work, he also creates large scale paintings and murals about topics inspired by his travels and also by social and political forces. His work has been exhibited in France and in the UK, Germany, Spain, Greece, USA, Mexico, and Nicaragua. He is regularly invited to urban art festivals and events.

In the last five years he has been involved in Land Art and Earthworks, and has worked with natural materials - like leaves, rocks, and snow - in the Olympus mountains in Greece, Death Valley National Park in California, Bardenas Desert in Spain, Lapland in Finland, and Hokkaido island in Japan.
