Siam

Siam

My name is Siam, I'm 20 years old, I come from the North of France, more precisely from Boulogne-sur-mer and Roubaix where I lived there as a teenager. I have been living in Paris for three years now for my studies in applied arts.

My practice as a plastic artist began when I was 6 years old, when my parents put me in the fine arts of my city. There I was able to discover the various academic fields of art: sculpture, drawing, painting. Then came the moment of adolescence, graffiti invaded my mind, to the point of becoming one of my main practice. The foundations offered to me by the school of fine arts allowed me to give my graffiti an impetus that could not be resolved literally. Also the fact of creating and living a character attracted me very young.

The letters SIAM come from a count that my mother read to me when I was a child, Siam is actually an elephant from Asia, who all his life, traveled the world, in circuses as well as on film sets. , appreciated by his kindness, his grandeur and his animal charisma. He ended his life at the Vincennes Zoo in Paris at the foot of the great mountain. Today its existence rests in the gallery of evolution of the natural history museum in Paris, sometimes I go to visit it, we talk together.

Today my practice of graffiti is plural, it infiltrates as well in painting on canvas, in sculpture or even in writing. I appreciate painting but what really attracts me is this dizzying and unknown moment that creation offers us, so I go on an adventure.
