2Flui is the artist name of French born contemporary street artist Cyril Simon. He is a “calligraffeur” and as such he works on alphabet letters, twisting and enhancing them with his very own urban artist touch. 2Flui has fallen in love with letters so deeply he is constantly looking for the perfect tag. Therefore 2Flui works painstakingly on both form and colours. According to 2Flui’s own saying he keeps on finding new ways to “torture” letters. In his studio works 2Flui mostly uses oil on canvas, ink and graffiti artists’ favorite: poska. Each of 2Flui canvas is inspired by all different types of calligraphy, from the Mid-Eastern one to the Asian one, through the South American. Literature has a strong influence on his painting as well. Political and philosophical ones dealing with peace and violence are the first inspiration of his canvases.
2Flui’s painting is a soft mix of a lot of different calligraphies (Asian, Arabic, Latin, …) that 2Flui draws inspiration from and his tag and graff technique accentuate my very own style
