André Saraiva

Paris, Tokyo

In this episode, the world-renowned graffiti artist André Saraiva tells us about the strong links between his artwork and the city of Tokyo. Born in 1971 in Sweden and moved to Paris in 1981, André started painting his iconic alter ego “Mr. A” in 1994 and making many collaborations. Ten years later, he opened the legendary Parisian club Le Baron. Thereafter, he also produced a number of brand-new venues around the world, while pursuing his artistic journey.
