ZENOY comes from the west suburbs of Paris. He discovered graffiti at the end of the 80s, beginning of the Graffiti & Hip Hop movement .
In 1988 he begins writing his first graffiti under the name " AWAISUN ", without knowing that it is the beginning of a new story that begins for him.
Slightly later in the year 1988, he changes his name again and decides to write "TRESH" with friends such as STEDY TFB, KONY NMC... He starts the practice of graffiti and multiplies his graffiti in the subway on the line 4 and on the Montparnasse train’s lines. At this time, he likes outputs in group and graffiti begins to take more and more place in his life and in his mind.
In 1990, he changed his name again, "TRESH" became "ZENOY" and this time this is the good, five letters, a name that sounds graffiti, ZENOY will never change again. It is at this time, the beginning of a long adventure, he paints his first blockletter "ZENOY" on the railways of Montparnasse and quickly starts meeting other writers such as STORM and OSTAR from the crew OPR. He spent entire nights with them bombing the streets of the french capital.
In 1991, he meets ZEA and KRUZ as well as many members of the DKC crew. At this precise moment, a story begins for him. ZENOY paints his first graffs on subways and trains but tagging remains very present in his mind, « I like tagging more than anything ».
Later on 1995, he meets SEZAM from the D77 crew (SHUCK 2, CINZ, ORGAN, BEARZ) which is a pioneer of the graffiti on trains at this time. He joins the team and multiplies meetings and outputs in order to devote hiself to his passion, graffiti.
Today, graffiti is an integrant part of his life, 20 years have passed and Zenoy keeps searching a certain harmony between colours and forms. Of course, the letter is the base and foundation of his work, but he always tries to blend and bring graffiti higher.
Besides the vandal graffiti, Zenoy dedicated hiself for more than 15 years to the graffiti on canvas and participated in numerous contemporary exhibitions. When he works on canvas he always tries to blend, to create, to innovate and to mix everything he saws, and lived in his life.He often compares graffiti to a cocktail made of very different fruits but whose the taste should be adjusts until you rich the best one.
After all these years he always has the same motivation and the same spirit when someones talk to him about graffiti. Then, even if the vandal mode is not as it used to be and a page turned off, Zenoy continues being productive and inventive, the ideas and the concepts ring out and he registers hiself day after day as a real artist of the contemporary art world.
