Born 1973 in Toulouse where he still lives and works.

Tilt is an internationally recognised 'traditional' graffiti artist, originating from Toulouse in the South of France. A self declared 'graffiti fetishist', he learned his trade in the streets and on trains as a youngster. Ever since his first tags on a skateboard ramp back in '88, Tilt's ensuing career has been nourished and influenced by extensive travel. Inspirational journeys have seen him exhibit and leave his mark as far and wide as the U.S.A., Hong Kong, Japan, Mexico, Thailand, Canada, and in excess of 10 countries throughout Europe.

Tilt loves demonstrating that basic, primitive graffiti can be as strong as complicated 3D lettering, wildstyles and characters.
His focus on fun, high impact shapes and strong colours is a reflection of his history as a true graffiti writer, trained on the streets and in the train yards. Similarly, his extensive use of bubbly, curvaceous forms relates to his obsession with beautiful females. Following classic hip-hop graffiti ideology, his individual styled name is the focal point in the majority of his paintings, in Tilt's case a bubble letter 'Throw-Up' (graf terminology for a writer's spraypainted name) incorporating fast lines, done in one or two colours and designed for fast execution. This is the process that Tilt is most interested in, and this is how he utilises his throw-up styles to visually communicate the fun of creating graffiti in risky situations.

Tilt has published a book of his art and photography titled 'Fetish Bubble Girls'.
He is now working a lot on this project, photographing girls all around the world and painting on them. He is planning heading on more tours and of course painting murals and wallpieces.
