Bault started out as an enthusiastic Graffiti Artist and long-term tagger back in 1997 in the South of France. He made his debut in Sète forming the T.K crew, and then met the well-known French Graffiti crews, T.S.H and F.D.P in Avignon. Bault abandoned his late night trips, and put down the cans for ten whole years. He started focusing more on his “indoor” works, producing rather graphic and illustrative pieces alongside a collection of unusual videos and animations. All the while, Bault was always scribbling or doodling something, and his tagging/lettering style seemed to fade away. He moved on to creating a family of characters, carving
out a signature style for himself. He found inspiration in an old type of “theatre” called Phantasmagoria, which started in France in the 18th century. A modified magic lantern was used to project frightening images of things such as skeletons, demons, and ghosts onto walls, smoke, or semi-transparent screens. Over many years, Bault has developed what he likes to call, “A cabinet of curiosities, mutating monsters, grotesque characters and polluted environments. My creatures are often amputated, bloated and incomplete – I like to think of them as a kind of, contemporary phantasmagoria.”
