SWOX (David Weber)

David Weber aka SWOX is a Swiss artist. He began painting graffiti at the age of 12 years. In 1989, he discovered tag and graffiti. From then on, the design of the letters will be an integral part of its creative process. Among his very first motivations: to draw on big
supports and write his name. Self-taught, he constantly tries new techniques. He draws, among other things, his inspiration from famous artists, like the painter Pierre Soulages, the architect Daniel Liebeskind, the muralist Momo and in all he discovers during his travels. All this material gives him the necessary tools to work on his technique and to define the structures that he wishes to give to his works. His work mixes the elements of graffiti, typography and forms graphic and architectural. This fusion is operated to create a modern aesthetic and elegant, sculpted with a spatula, structured with markers and flattened with broad strokes brushes or aerosol.
