Born in 1972, Gregos, grew up in the northern suburbs of Paris (Gonesse, Villiers le Bel).Self-taught, his first steps in street art were in Graffiti painting during the late 80s, early 90s. In 1997, after 2 years in Athens, Greece, he starts experimenting with sculpting and molding techniques. In 2003, he leaves for Boston, Massachusetts, USA where he initiates himself to acrylic and oil paintings. Back in Paris in 2006, he goes back to his first love: street art. In the Montmartre district where he now lives, he decides to participate and mingle in the ever present street art in this area of Paris. He invents his own 3D concept using all the techniques he has develop and taught himself over the years, and creates a replicate of his face, tongue out or smiling, that he paints and glues on the walls of Paris. Each face is a sort of self-portrait of the day to express his humors, his past, present, and future, everything that make Gregos… As of today, more than 500 faces have been installed in Paris mostly, but also in other towns of France and of the world.
