Manuel Fernandez alias KiKo was born 1985 and is from Martigues, near Marseille.
He has an innate gift for drawing. But art is not a subject in his family of sailors who primarily have a passion for the sea and fishing.
KiKo therefore joins the family boat; you don’t leave the ship like that!
From this harsh life as a sailor, KiKo built an imaginary universe in which the childhood which suspended its flight there inspired all of his work.
It was later, in the studio of his father-in-law, a painter, that he learned the technique of painting and immediately created an artistic universe recognizable at first glance.
When he became a full-time artist, he chose his child nickname KIKO as his artist name.
Onemizer works his lettering with meticulousness, he revisits the portraits of personalities or objects having marked history. In addition, he continuously develops a wide range of styles, combining graffiti, tags, “coulures” with a multitude of colors.
