Olivier Rizzo, aka Speedy Graphito, has been presenting his amused and ironic view of the world for over thirty years, and his murals reflect the memory of our time. The history of art, consumerism, new technologies - there are as many subjects as there are colorful forms of representation. His works, a true diary of his existence, summarize his life journey, his tireless quest to represent his inner adventure in a world that is always changing. Speedy Graphito: signature that sounds like a challenge, an artistic manifesto. Fast as the bright and sure gesture of felt slipping on a sheet of paper, a brushstroke on the canvas or even a hand cutting and applying a stencil. Few artists can present such a variety of media or such a thirst to create as he can, and his prolific work never ceases to surprise.
