Today, known at an international level, Blek le Rat is one of the pioneers of the art steet. He began in 1981 by making the walls of Paris graffiti representing rats. To stand out from other street artists, he chose the particular stencil technique to achieve its graffiti, dedicated to representations of famous or anonymous figures, often life-size, perfectly integrated into the architecture of cities. This representation of the Statue of Liberty is a beautiful illustration of its urban art.
Banksy and Blek are probably the two current major artists of the European urban art. But when Banksy was still in short trousers, Blek was already at work. «Every time I think I've painted something original, I find out that Blek le Rat has not only done, but twenty years ago, » said Banksy.
