List of artworks by artist Lek
The power of deconstruction
Artist from the graffiti scene in Paris, Lek develops a style nourished by his years of architectural studies whose lettering, abstraction and futurism sign his work.
Influenced by the Bauhaus style, Lek reinvents classic codes and creates works of chaos. The artist uses deconstruction as a guide, making his work made of new forms such as directions or structures both rigid and ephemeral.
Always in search of places of importance, Lek expresses himself considering the constraints of the space to create a new and unexpected dynamics which dialogues with the environment.

Since, Lek and Sowat multiply collaborations with artists from various scopes such as the poet beat John Giorno, the stylists Agnès b and Jean Charles de Castelbajac, the pioneers of Graffiti Futura, Mode2 and Jonone or Jacques Villeglé, forerunner street art.
