Mixed media: torn posters and a stencil made with a spray can mounted on canvas. During his interventions on the walls, Ender collects posters. Most often, he uses the reverse side of these posters, which thus keep the imprint of the previous poster. These are broken down into more or less large pieces, like an urban puzzle, from which sometimes the trace of a word or an indication emerges.
Ender was born in 1973, he lives and works in Paris. Professional actor for more than 25 years, inquiring about art in general terms, he started by pasting up his stencils on Parisian walls in 2008.
He acts as a film director when pasting up on the walls of Paris, Rome, Marseilles, Strasbourg, Venice or Florence, making sure the stencil and the wall onto which it is pasted can have a proper dialogue and above all, that the viewers get into the conversation.
At the beginning, the serie Les Mariolles, depicting playful and insolent kids pulling out their tongs to passers-by, will be followed by the serie showing gargoyles, and mythological characters as well as angels. The common ground to all these favored themes lies in the will to borrow classical themes and integrate them into modern times, angels landing on our walls naturally wear hoodies.
Ender’s studio work is now shown in different galleries in Paris, Nice, Marseille and Strasbourg. He participated twice in the festival international d’art contemporain des Alpilles.
Mentionned in a dozen books dealing with urban art, he’s one of the few french artist in the « Planet Banksy book edited in the United States in 2014. More on Ender
