PRO was born in the 12th district of Paris in 1976.
He spent his childhood in the district of Choisy-le-Roi. A first graphic impact hits him very early: some comics of Jack Kirby, which he learns to draw at the age of 5 . The Marvel’s drawings, the Strange’s characters and others Nova will follow him all his life.
In June, 1987, the artists Mode 2 and Colt accomplished a wall called " direct Revolution ", a baseline which revealed true for him. Hypnotized by the technique of the two artists, he decides in spite of his young age to devote his life to painting.
In 1991 Pro steals his first classic : the book Spraycan Art. Completly contaminated, the krylon paint runs definitely into his veins. His study of Graffiti continues in parallel of the rap and school is quickly replaced by the meetings at the Railway station « gare de lyon ».
In 1996, renamed " Pro176 ", he creates the International Ultraboys crew. With Gold Jaba, prince Pro, Sozyone, Kool Func 88, Byz, Shake and Kool Recto, they assert a new form of graffiti, an esthetic impregnated with Marvels, with futuristic abstract mathematics of alphabetic constructivism and facials. A kind of new Pure Graffiti, ignoring quite other vision of the graffiti, assumed useless.The same year, he joined the group of the famous " Grim Team " collective of urban artists composed by artists such as OENO, CHAZE or ARMEN the photographer, as well as the ULTRABOYZ’s team.
The steam of paint sticks more than ever to the sneakers of Pro. He multiplies the outputs in group in the French capital and write many tags. His galactic style evolves very rapidly and starts to develop a particular affection for "throws up".
In the vanguard of the graffiti, PRO has a rare and unequalled style, between futuristic lines imitating the styles of an earlier period and Cubism. In painting as in his songs, the cyber painter assert a premonitory lexical field, which is centered around the notions of galaxy, hyperspace and planets.
