Raphael paints only unique pieces, and on very rare occasions makes very limited copies of lithographs/serigraphies. He defines his current period as “Afrofuturist”.
Born in 1986, Raphael currently lives and works in Paris. However, he travels a lot as he's constantly looking for new walls to paint.
Proud of Generation Y, he seeks to be its spokesman by the types of subjects and techniques he uses. He seeks to establish a contact with his contemporaries by trying out a universal language called 'urban Art'.
He gets his work done in his studio as well as on the streets and believes his 'limitless' art gives birth to a new blend of classical painting, spray painting, illustration, projection, leather wood etc.
Raphael likes to use noble techniques to deliver a rather underground message, inducing from this fusion a new artistic spirit, which sometimes feels incomplete. Since 2012, he has been focussing on painting around the world, constantly seeking for inspiration and adventure. He describes his artistic movement as Neo Pop-expressionism and works actually on the paths of Afro-futurism.
