Matt_tieu | Upfest


Matt_tieu is a self-taught artist based in Paris. He has been drawing faces and animals since his childhood and has been in the streets of Paris since 2015. His principle is to appropriate, according to his encounters, coffee slates, walls, wooden panels or concrete of Metro stations. His approach is mostly spontaneous and without special preparation, which allows him to adapt to the media he meets on his way. His faces adopt a neutral and peaceful posture, turned towards the passers-by, inviting them to take a step back on their daily life. His birds, more playful, try to brighten the lives of those they meet. He uses chalk to create his works, which gives an ephemeral side to his creations.
