a new series of hijacked street signs, this time by another creative French artist Jinks Kunst. Kunts, born in March 1976, in Vevey in Switzerland, was firstly interested in music and rap culture mostly.
Having a keen eye for images, Jinks is passionate about photography and video which led him to pursue todio-visual studies and follow several training courses as “Touche à tout” on France Télévision –French public tv-. His photographer work began at this time. He then work for several TV or cultural magazines, festivals, or for artists that captures his talent. And this artistic practice will never leave him. In 2003, Jinks found himself ready to mob graffiti’s environment. It was at this point that he was named “Jinks” to humorously represent the “bad luck” that seemed to plague him!
Still eager to discover, Jinks considers each new work as an experiment in itself in the way of approaching and tackling his subject matter as well as in the techniques he uses. He feels enrolled in street art and combine his graffiti references to the stencil technique, whose Jef Aérosol, Bansky and Blek le Rat are the representants since the early 80’s.
