Street Artist RAST

BIO: Rast is a self-taught artist from Yvelines (78). After spending his youth drawing in his notebooks, he began to tag at the age of 14. Two years later he embarked on lettering with the blaze he chose for himself: “For my blaze, I was inspired by my last name. And I like the letters that compose it”. Despite everything, he abandoned lettering fourteen years later and preferred to make realistic portraits. Rast works on the skin texture on his portraits, and never forgets his baroque frame. He is inspired by “faces of the world” during his travels for his creations.
