Ratur was born in Le Havre, France in 1983. The figurative work of Ratur examines the relationship between graffiti and old masters. His European influences revolve around classic painting, graphic design and graffiti. His characters, who always seem to want to remain anonymous, are depicted in a very contemporary way. Despite his realistic approach, he does not seek to reproduce reality and plays with different graphic treatments on successive planes and the depth of field. The hand, omnipresent in his work, often provides context and tells us more about the character's intentions. His participation in various street art festivals and exhibitions in Europe and the United States is gradually pushing him towards an international career.
