MIST x TILT Signing at Secret Fresh

Last January 10 Mist and Tilt dropped by Ronac Art Center and were kind enough to sign wip caps and vinyl toys for the collectors.

MIST, born in Paris in 1972, discovered "graffiti art" in 1988 on his way to school, where he studied design during 4 years. He then learned sculpting in a collectible figures company during one year. During the same period, he joined the COP (Control of Paris) crew in 1992 and painted many walls with his partner Steph (creator of the Imaginary Friendz collection). Fascinated by Wild Style letters, he also started to develop his own character style. 

TILT, an internationally recognised traditional graffiti artist, originating from Toulouse in South France. A self declared "graffiti fetishist", he learned his trade in the streets and on trains as a youngster. In the time since he did his first tags on a skateboard ramp back in '88, his ensuing career has been nourished and influenced by extensive travel. Inspirational journeys have seen Tilt exhibit and leave his mark as far and wide as the U.S.A, Hong Kong, Japan, Mexico, Thailand, Australia, New Zealand, Laos, Taiwan, China, Canada, Philippines, Indonnesia, Maldivians and in excess of 12 countries throughout Europe.
