Based in Bordeaux (France), WOO is a multi-disciplinary artist at the crossroads of street art and calligraphy.

An instinctive and highly graphic art form

Since childhood, WOO has been inspired by Keith Haring's thick strokes and the colourful, sculptural forms of Niki de Saint Phalle's work. Today he presents an original body of work combining acrylic paint and pigmented or metallic inks, all on a variety of media that are limited only by his inspiration.

WOO advocates instinctive art and plays with symbols that are not always symbolic, mixing the brutality of tagging with the gentleness of calligraphy.
His deep attachment to the elegance of oriental alphabets is expressed in his productions in singular calligraphic elements. The repetition of the gesture, the movement of the wrist and the fluidity sometimes constitute the symbolism itself. When they are not telling a story or a place.

Between references to Pop culture and personal interpretations

The aestheticism of glyphic and logographic scripts, pictograms and ideograms are all sources of inspiration that he uses to illustrate his work.

This symbiosis between writing and drawing gives rise to works in which anyone can interpret a story, nourished by pre-Columbian, primitive or oriental symbols, mixed with animal or plant representations, in which certain references to Pop Culture may be hidden.

Woo's work invites a free interpretation, where everyone can find themselves at the heart of the story.
