Noé Two was born in Paris, France in 1974. He is one of the most emblematic figures of French graffiti and one of the most accomplished artists of his generation. He grew up in the popular neighborhoods of the capital which are at the same time as culturally diverse and forever having been a source of inspiration for many artists.
Working since the end of the eighties, he chose his name as an artist using the biblical reference to Noah. Just as the Ark which shelters all the animals, his work encompasses different graphic and pictorial approaches which he incorporates in his original composition. Even so his art is displayed on frescos and on canvas; this self-taught artist doesn’t hesitate to explore the different facets of graphic creation. Furthermore, he masters new 3d technology, and attempts to create thanks to photographic montage and video footage. Renowned artist, he pushes the limits of rendering realism through the use of spray paint.
His impressive mastery of the tools renders portraits witch shout out realism. For several years now, Noé Two has left his current signature style aside in order to explore different avenues. Currently more than a representation, he essentially works on the interpretation of his subject, his work. More abstract and marked heavily by graphic composition, his current works are built as a game of shapes using coordinating curves and colors.
His graffiti breaks free from the pre-established codes and rules of perception. Noé Two has gone international for more than two decades. He participates in projects, events and auctions in well renowned artistic circles of the United States, the People’s Republic of China as well as in Europe. Read Less

Like in the streets, his paintingsevolve around two themes, figurative by the creation of a series of portraits, and uses calligraphy for abstraction. The research of the use of color gave noe two the opportunity to conceive his own artistical universe.
He uses a color spectrum to convey emotion.He uses color for itself, warm or cold it becomes a genuine topic of the painting. Noe two pays a lot of attention into to painting sight with exceptional details therefor manages to achieve a first truth.From this sight, main element of the painting, appears an alignment of color spots , colors witch seem fluorescent, radiant, creating therefor a more intensive expression.Far from being a simple figuration exercise, the use of color in the subjective interpretation he creates, this enables this artist to reach a precision that aims to scan the undescriptible In his most abstract creations, color becomes the soul of the painting.The spontaneous way of acting, painting is privileged.
