GRAPHIKSTREET


Arnaud Sagnier aka Graphikstreet was born in the north of France in 1973, and currently works as an artistic director in Roubaix.

His work consists of making collages which he defines as "pop-vintage" using posters torn from the street, old papers and magazine clippings from the 50s and 60s. He then creates compositions using influences from fashionable music to design and advertising.

He likes to mix the past and the present to create a shift, bringing out a forgotten visual and confronting it with a contemporary context. His colorful and rhythmic collages use the codes of advertising, and play with typography, shapes and bright colors to create dynamic, balanced and harmonious visuals.
