MIAMI STREET ART (ART BASEL ’16): MONKEY SEE, MONKEY DO

Born in Versailles, France, Sebastien “Mr. D” Boileau was influenced by the American Pop Art and Graffiti movement of the 60s, 70s, and 80s and began his artistic endeavors in Paris in 1987 at the age of 14.
In 1989, Mr. D created his first piece of canvas art, as well as his first large scale mural.
In the early-90s he began to travel the world painting in remote countries like Sierra Leone, Tunisia, Senegal, and many western destinations.
In 1995, Mr. D was invited to participate in his first contemporary art group show in Paris.
He migrated to the United States in 1998 and in 2000 launched what is now a highly successful mural company in Houston, Texas, Eyeful Art Murals and Designs, serving both the public and private sectors.
Mr. D’s signature style is known as “Canpressionism“ a neo-impressionist style primarily done with spray paint and street art techniques.
“After 28 years as an artist, the stigma remains, and I want to change people’s perception in regards to Urban Art. My artistic and personal goal is to use my skills, experience, and credibility to demonstrate an “Urban Art as Fine Art” approach through ‘Canpressionism’.”
