Tilt (Toulouse, France,1973) is an internationally known graffiti artist. He defines himself as a “graffiti fetishist” and his first tag was made on a skateboard ramp in 1988. Tilt’s career was then influenced by his long travels, in which he left his mark all over the world. His attention is always pointed at the old school and at the wild style, which allow him to produce works with high impact forms and strong colours able to fascinate the observer. Inspirational journeys have seen Tilt exhibit and leave his mark behind him as far as the U.S.A, Hong Kong, Japan, Mexico, Thailand, Australia, New Zealand, Laos, Taiwan, China, Canada, Philippines, Indonesia, and in more than 12 countries throughout Europe.
Tilt loves demonstrating that basic and primitive graffiti can be as powerful and complicated as 3D lettering, wild styles or characters. His focus on letters, high impact shapes and bright colours is a reflection of his history as a true graffiti writer, trained on the streets and in the train fields. Similarly, his extensive use of bubbly, curvaceous forms relates to his obsession with beautiful females.
Following classic hip-hop graffiti ideology, his individual styled name is the focal point in the majority of his paintings. In Tilt’s case it is the bubbled lettering “Throw-up”. “Throw-Up” is a graffiti terminology for a writer’s spraypainted name incorporating quick lines in one or two colours only, designed for fast execution; it is the action which Tilt is most interested in, thus he uses his throw-up styles to visually communicate the fun of creating graffiti in risky situations.
