A native of Uppsala, Sweden, AndrĂ© began painting on the walls of Paris in 1985 and quickly became one of the city's most prolific graffiti artists. He broke ground by becoming the first artist to use a characterâ€”"Mr. A," a stick figure with a top hatâ€”instead of a tag name. In "Love Graffiti," one of his most famous projects, AndrĂ© spray paints a lover's name in oversized bubble letters in a location of his client's choice. In 2004, Andre and friends opened Le Baron, an elite and confidential micro-club created from a former bordello. AndrĂ© continues to redefine the art of nightlife itself. AndrĂ© splits his time between Paris and New York City.
