A free and surreal identity

Rubik's is a 200m2 Augmented Reality mural in Maubeuge, France. Shapes and colors dance before the public's eyes as they pass their phones in front of the work using the OLO application created by the artist.

Color and movement

The creative openness that comes from his training, combined with the visual codes of Hip Hop, results in creations as colorful as 80s rap, as expressive as the heroes of Japanese comics, as committed as the cinema of Spike Lee.
