French Hopare is now in Tahiti where he recently finished this new wall for the ONO’U Graffiti Festival.
Hopare’s work is characterized by a fractured design relaying on drawing and deep blacks, where a variety of interesting variations in line, colour, application and positive/negative space make his work vibrant. This accompanied by the subtle softness of his portraits and shading, a lovely mix.
