Andre Saraiva aka Monsieur André

Andre Saraiva aka Monsieur André

Andre Saraiva is the French graffiti artist responsible for creating street art’s most lovable and recognisable character, Monsieur André. Working consistently since the mid 80s André has become something of a celebrity icon in Paris. I would definitely credit Andre Saraiva, along with Keith Haring, as a forefather of the street art we predominately see today. I cannot think of a street artist before him who so calculatedly used their graffiti to create a brand for themselves.
