Guillaume Lemarquier aka MIST is a French artist born in 1972 in Paris whose paintings in the slightly acid colors and wildstyle leave nobody indifferent. Very fast he is recognized as being a member of writers most talented and respected by the capital.  It is also one of the rarse to excel at the same time at the drawing of characters and at that letters.  In 1998 he develops his work of sculpture and realizes his first character in volume.

It is at the end of the 80’s when Mist discovers the graffiti along the railroads of the RER (REGIONAL EXPRESS RAIL) by going to his school of graphic art to Paris. Captivated by what he saw, he realizes his first graffiti piece in 1988.

In 2001 with his label ” Bonustoys ” he edits his own toys. It becomes then one of the pioneers of what we call ” designer toys “, these small sculptures today in vinyl were produced in edition(publishing) from 100 to 1000 ex. and were sold in toy shops of collection all over the world. The specialists place him in the world top five artists’ side as Kaws and Futura. Today, Mist dedicates himself completely to the sculpture and to the painting in his studio in Montpellier where he lives today. His work is inspired by graphic codes of the graffiti and is even well beyond.

Mist lives and works in Montpellier, France.
