EpS

Graffiti artist

Lives in Lebanon

EpS est né et a grandi en Côte d’Ivoire où les magazines de Hip-Hop étaient le seul lien avec le graffiti. En 2002 la guerre civile déchire la Côte d’Ivoire et l’artiste de 18 ans se voit contraint de retourner au Liban, le pays de ses racines.

Peindre devient son moyen de personnaliser et s’approprier son nouvel environnement. Aujourd’hui le nom EpS et son personnage emblématique, le singe Ceasar font partie intégrante de Beyrouth.

EpS was born and raised in Ivory Coast where Hip-Hop magazines were the only link to graffiti. In 2002 the civil war destroyed Ivory Coast and the 18-year-old artist was forced to return to Lebanon, the country of his roots.

Painting became his means of personalizing and appropriating his new environment. Today the name EpS and its iconic character, the monkey Ceasar, are a real part of Beirut.
