Alexis Robiou ( born 1974)
Alexis was born a perfect baby who was about to stop the weel of karma ... Obviously , no one knew about it back then , but somehow , in retrospective , it all started to make an awful lot of sense... At the age of five , he started to fiddle with quantum mechanics , soon to move on to super string theory...when he turned eight , his uncle gave him a photographic dark room from which he would not emerge until he turned into a fully formed human being... That is when the trouble started ...he got involved with street art and graffiti when nobody knew what it was about ...spraypainting his shoes , helmet and public walls while the police watched in amazement his hyper realistic renditions of modern day alienation. He somehow got involved with the parisian stencil graffiti scene ...but he could never be part of a gang that accepted him as a member ...so , he became a professional bowling player instead (his opponents bitterly remember him rolling an almost perfect 296 ) before going back to his true love in 2009 : slime mold investigationSelected work:
