Olivier Rizzo, aka SPEEDY GRAPHITO, was born in Paris in 1961. He is one of the pioneers of the French Street art movement alongside others like Jérôme Mesnager, Miss Tic & Blek le Rat. By imposing a powerful, innovative style in the early 80’s, Speedy left his mark on the memory of a generation. He hasn’t stopped evolving, always in step with the times, by inventing pictorial languages and codes that are iconoclastic and satirical of society. Though his work has evolved considerably over the past few decades, he has become known and revered for his exploration of commercialism and references to pop culture images and icons. His inﬂuence on new generations of artists and the current cultural landscape is unparalleled. His works are found in private and public collections throughout the world. Speedy Graphito lives and works in Paris.
