ANDRÉ SARAIVA™. AN COLLECTOR'S EDITION ARTISTIC COLLABORATION.
André Saraiva, also known as Monsieur A, is a French graffiti artist born in 1971. Raised as a son of Portuguese parents in Uppsala, Sweden he has been living in Paris since his childhood. Saraiva started doing graffiti in 1985, quickly acquiring notoriety in the late 90s with Mr. A, a cartoonish character with a top hat, big smile, long legs, and a cross and circle for his eyes that could be found all over the streets of Paris. For this collector's edition of the Nagata Speed Blade André applied his trademark pink and blue to juxtapose every frame component. An exclusive artwork is also featured on the right hand lens and only visible when condensed or breathed on. Each collector's edition piece is packaged in an exclusive artwork that André created through stacking the 300 boxes to form a wall and spraying.
