Momies arrives on the Graffiti scene in Montpellier in 1993. His work on walls is then very inspired by the classic Graffiti from New York. Many railway trips to Eastern Europe and the United States will then multiply his influences.
From these travels, he will come back by asserting his style especially in the “Modules”, very personal work of industrial tracings, all in curves and colors, also very adapted to the constraints of speed of the actions interails. It then invests abandoned industrial areas, giving them a second life by dressing them with its famous “Modules” dynamic and colorful.

New trips to the islands and especially New Caledonia will further enrich his work. In his paintings will burst the lush colors of local fauna and flora, and those of the emblematic striped knits recurrent in New Caledonia.

In his studio, on canvas, Momies proposes a work of the letter, unique and immediately identifiable. The colors, dynamic and vibrant, dribble with force and are nevertheless filled with minute details. Its Modules, on the other hand, are elegant, bursting, exploding and intertwined in a fascinating mix of colors and textures.

All these typographic forms that Momies imagines and kneads with vigor, give to his work this fluid and dynamic style that seduces us.

Lettering, the first inspiration for Momies, comes back completely revisited, inspired by his discovery of the Comic Strip of the Sixties, which touches him and challenges him.

We can thus discover that Momies integrates into his paintings his “humorous calligraphy”, thus positioning himself in an amused recoil compared to the so-called truth of our time.

On his canvases, the materials overlap; we find in turn the layout of the bomb and the path of the brush. His outside work came to mix with his studio work. The materials and lines intertwine, confront and superimpose each other to give this dynamic rendering. The lines run on the canvas, spread and seem to want to stretch to infinity.

Today Momies has returned to his first inspirations, a very rounded layout that forged his unique style. The “module” characteristic of his abstract universe is preponderant. Black and white occupies an important place thus highlighting his work on the material while the colors are also inviting in his lines. Its modules, starting from only the three primary colors will mix and create a palette of bright and varied colors.
