Cedric "Honet". Born in 1972. Lives and works in Paris, France. Honet rules out completely the idea of introducing sensu stricto graffiti in the exhibition area. So when he's not working for Prada or showing his paintings in the Speerstra gallery; he considers graffiti in his own way, that is to say like a practise : an "act" and not just its result. Graffiti is recorded as an act with "symbolic" nature, a day to day action. "I started graffiti in 1988, painting some walls along the lines tracks and on trains beginning of the 90', in Paris, then across all Europe from London to Bucharest, from Helsinki to Athens and far away cities such as Moscow, Beijing or Tokyo !"—from the artist's site.
