Gris1 - Studio Visit

An  abundance of vibrant colours surround the studio of French graffiti artist Gris1, from his schooldesk, post-it notes, sketchbooks, drawings and paintings. Gris1 is also an expert in model trains, where he adds his unique writing touch.
The title of one of his latest paintings sums it well: “Colors make me smile”.
