Coming from the Paris area, Cinz started his passion for hip-hop in the 90’s. Belonging to the second generation of graffiti artists, he has improved his talent outdoors around the streets and the train tracks. In 1995, his meeting with Jade from D77 (Défonce 7 jours sur 7) has introduced him to the graffiti’s world. In the meantime, at the end of the 90’s, he started painting frames despite his close friends claiming it was nonsense. He has various views on urban sceneries where he mixes graffitis and tags.
After several trials, he showed his first works during an exhibition from the Sales School of Saint-Germain-en-Laye. After a New York trip, he came back full of energy and creativity. His relationship with the city follows him since the beginning of his career. He became a real workshop painter with all the roughness and torment that it implies. His work strikes by the size, assembly of the colors and the technical control of which he shows.
You can read his work on 2 levels : the attention either goes on the overall picture, with the often symmetrical composition, then it is the analysis of the multitude of details which occupies the spirit. Present on the graffiti scene, he dissociates from other graffiti artists by his artistic approach.
After following a plasma cutting machine course, Cinz is turning more and more towards the metal material he particularly likes, he produces drawings by cutting steel or stainless steel.
