In 2007, NER ONE starts Le Coktail collective, with which he takes part in numerous projects that include Street Art, graffiti, graphic design, painting, set design and decoration. His work is very much inspired by the energy and vivid atmosphere of the street; after Bordeaux and Paris, he now lives and works in London.
The vibrancy of the city and its crazy nightlife, with the never-ending labyrinth of neon lights and music clubs inspire many of his paintings.
His more organic work represents unique colourful flowers mixed with the surreal lighting of fluorescent tubes.
As he is aware of the various ecological challenges and economic problems of today’s world, Nerone constantly insists on spreading a positive message through his art. Throughout his career, he has been commissioned to work for different artistic events around the world, such as the International Flowers Festival in Seoul, the FIA Formula E Championship in Berlin, and the Flower Show Turkey in Istanbul.
His colourful and outlandish walls can now be seen in many places, including Paris, New-York, Cartagena, Bangkok, Berlin, Marrakech and Seoul.
Nerone has also worked for various international companies including Celebrity Cruises, Danone, Puma, Jaguar Land Rover…
