Who is A1one ?

A1one is the street name of a visual artist who created graffiti and street art in Iran.
He was the first person who started painting on walls of Tehran so his nickname ended to be “Alone” which then mutated into A1one. He started his street art project in 2003 and inspired his close friends at that time to also begin painting on the streets.

Who is Blek Le Rat ?

Blek le Rat, born Xavier Prou in Boulogne-Billancourt, Paris in 1951, was one of the first graffiti artists in Paris, and the originator of stencil graffiti art.

He began his artwork in 1981, painting stencils of rats on the street walls of Paris, describing the rat as “the only free animal in the city”, and one which “spreads the plague everywhere, just like street art”. His name originates from a childhood cartoon “Blek le Roc”, using “rat” as an anagram for “art“.
