Bishopparigo, real name Nicolas Poirier, is a 36-year-old Parisian artist. Specialist in the contemporary urban universe, he inhabits in a colourful world where the smile is king and merriment his mistress.
It was in the early 2000s that the young self-taught artist felt a growing passion for street art deep within. Strolling through the streets of the capital, he dreamt up an inspirational book and began to give life to his own universe.
It was only a few years later, after many representations of dreamlike creatures, that he would breathe life into his symbolic animal, the Bishop bird.
His little birds are his trademark, encouraging spectators to rediscover their inner child.
