Myre emerged as a graffiti writer while still a teenager, leaving his mark on public spaces in Paris and other big cities around the world. With his introduction to the budding graffiti scene in Latin America during his first trip there in the early 2000s, his approach began taking a definitive shape – a fusion between the tools of muralism, Latin American graphic art and an urban practice rooted in the rules that defined New York’s golden age. His lettering developed a universal geometric vocabulary tinged by the Chilean palette. This chromatic experimentation remains at the core in his recent, more figurative work. For the last ten years he has been doing studio work in a personal exploration where the aesthetics of graffiti writing meet art history.
Born in Chicago in 1976, Myre lives and works in Paris, France.
