One of the leading graffiti artists in France, Franck Noto aka Zest is known for his unique abstract vocabulary characterized by decomposed movements. Over the years, he has turned his work into a much more personal form of expression, significantly progressing towards abstraction.
Combining different energies found in graffiti, Zest brings them out through the basic shapes and the primary colors he uses. This is also the case with the piece on the Lavapies street which is adding a perfect touch of color to the area. Its bright colors symbolize the aspect of urban art that immediately catches the eye of passers-by, while its transparency of forms reflects an accumulation of energies and movements.
