French streetartist / Illustrator living in Shanghai. Known as Keflione, His Majesty Keflouis XIV, or Keflouis Vuitton. Keflouis comes from the Graffiti and Street Art movements, where the concepts of "egotrip" and "territoriality" are recurring elements. During a trip in Asia, he spent several months in the sultanate of Brunei Darussalam, on Borneo Island. The sultan, one of the wealthiest men in the world thanks to the extraction of oil, is called HM (His Majesty) by his people. In this case, the comparison with a dictatorial monarchy appeared to Keflouis as evidence; the reference to the Sultanate is direct, almost logical. Here, he staged himself as the ironic founder of a monarchy or a kingdom, and worked on the issues that a leader may encounter.

His Majesty was told by his friend Dezio about this abandoned school in downtown Shanghai. A typical communist school, with some paintings still on the walls, and a super wet and rotten atmosphere. But a quite unique calm place in the middle of the city.

After a quick visit, His Majesty came back for a class room session with Ben Bureau 36 behind the camera.

Here’s  the result :

Poignard, Couronne & Plume. / Knife, Crown & Feather ,

I was commissioned by Puma Social South-East Asia to create 4 illustrations for 4 cities:

HONG-KONG, KUALA LUMPUR, TAIPEI, SINGAPORE

The 4 illustrations will be limited posters, given in Puma Shops.
Every one is based on the same layout, including a city monogram and the main buildings.
Here’s a small preview of the steps:

I was asked by a friend of mine to perform for the French consulate in Wuhan, China.

Yes, it’s on Friday the 13th !

I was in charge of the communication so here’s the black and white, monogramed, first version of Vendredi 13. Below the colored, final version of the flyer.

I didn’t do any flyer design for a long time, i have to admit that it was quite fun. Dealing with colors is something i’m not used to anymore, but i enjoyed and quite like the result.
Dj MauMau will be playing some cool tracks while i m painting.

Feel free to come by if you’re around !

TMRWTODAY_LOGO

I did 2 animated Gifs for the TMRWTODAY fashion project. > tmrwtoday.com <

The first one is based on my Majestyrone Type, the second one, on the Flatirone I also designed. I admit that working with this bitmap-like effect was quite fun.
