André Saraiva

Born in Sweden and with a Portuguese ancestry, André Saraiva (aka Monsieur André or Monsieur A) is a graffiti artist based in France . He paints a distinctive stick-figure character, usually with a top hat and an ‘X’ in place of one of the eyes. He is part of the early Parisian graffiti scene along with Invader and Zevs, and he appears in Banksy street art movie, Exit Through the Gift Shop. His distinctive style, poetic and joyful, and his use of pink color, made him quickly stand out. In the early 2000s, he developed the Love Graffiti series.
