Block 513 / national

A discreet and mysterious artist, BLOCK 513 is one of the emerging artists from the European Street Art scene and more generally from urban art. Living between Paris, Brittany and London, he occupies an original place thanks to the imaginary world he created with his “Worms”. A universe of creatures that is populated by funny and mischievous little characters. Some have only one head, others have only one arm ending in an arrow. These fantastic and supernatural little beings are often accompanied by fantastic flowers and objects diverted from everyday life as well as the strange little worms that are the “Worms”. The “Worms” with or without legs are omnipresent in his creations.

Biography

A discreet and mysterious artist, BLOCK 513 is one of the emerging artists from the European Street Art scene and more generally from urban art. Living between Paris, Brittany and London, he occupies an original place thanks to the imaginary world he created with his “Worms”. A universe of creatures that is populated by funny and mischievous little characters. Some have only one head, others have only one arm ending in an arrow. These fantastic and supernatural little beings are often accompanied by fantastic flowers and objects diverted from everyday life as well as the strange little worms that are the “Worms”. The “Worms” with or without legs are omnipresent in his creations. They come from nowhere, from the sky, from the earth, from the mouths or ears of creatures and sometimes from the mouths of other “Worms”. This world is wonderful, simple and joyful, as in a waking dream. Anything is possible and everyone can benefit from it. Young and old can find their way around or identify themselves in an offbeat spirit, able to play down everyone’s situation. Today the BLOCK 513 “Worms” invade the space of our daily life.
