L’outsider is a street artist from france. I don’t know a whole lot about him beyond his work. But what he does resonates with me deeply. He has taken the effected piecing┬ástyle graffiti, and meshed it with a very Herb Lubalin typography. Looking through his sketchbooks you’ll fine he’s an extremely creative individual with his type, using negative space really well. His abstract art is also well crafted and fun to look at.

Them frenchies keep killin’ it!!

One thing about graffiti i find interesting, is it’s basically a career created out of a calligraphic / typographic study of one word, spanning over years and years. Funny to think about, considering all the different words designers set and manipulate through their career.
