André Saraiva is a French graffiti artist and entrepreneur, born in 1971 in Uppsala in Sweden. Of Portuguese origin, his parents did flee the regime of the dictator Salazar and emigrate to Sweden in the early 1970s. At the age of 10, he moved to Paris with his family. He then discovered graffiti, and in 1989, he invented his famous character, Mr A. Over 300,000 Mr. A were drawn with a frantic pace of about 20 graffitis per night on all support types since the beginning of his career. After years of hanging out in the graffiti world without really acquiring recognition, his Mr. A character suddenly met a real success. Mr A is more than a signature, it is a joyous character with a bulbous face, often wearing a top hat and whose eyes, one round, and the other one sealed by a cross, seem to be winking at you. Perched on long straight legs, Mr. A. looks like its inventor: smiling, charming and mischievous. After the opening of his gallery named 'La mercerie d’André' in Paris in which he sells his works, he was spotted in 1997 by Japanese patrons who propelled him on the Tokyo art scene. In 2002, he opened the BlackBlock concept store in the Palace of Tokyo. In 2004, André created the frescoes of the new Tokyo airport terminal. He appeared in 2010 in the film ‘Exit through the gift shop’, directed by Banksy. André Saraiva enjoys a great international reputation for his work as an artist but is also disparaged by some people as being a ‘vandal’, particularly by environmental activists defending the Joshua Tree National Park in California, where André created a graffiti on a rock located in the parking lot of the park. In 2011, his works were exhibited in the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, in the Grand Palais in Paris and during the 54th Biennale in Venice. In 2014, a retrospective was organized in the Museu do Design e da Moda, in Lisbon.
He has collaborated with Futura, Belvedere, Orangina, Mango, Uniqlo and many other artists and brands.
He is nowadays part of big names such as JonOne, Kaws, Chevrier, Seen, JR, M.Chat, Imbue, Peeta, Pantone, Okuda, Bordalo II, Vhils, Haring, Koons, Cattelan, Murakami, Stik, Brusk, Obey, Invader, Dface etc...
