Born in Metz, France in 1987, Mantra is a self-taught artist and muralist who has been painting since 2008. He grew up between the noise of the city and the whispers of the surrounding countryside, and his works pay homage to the heroes of his childhood garden in France such as butterflies, owls, spiders and birds in a realistic and lively style. Mantra works to create organic relationships between his subjects and their environments — known around the world for his magnificent murals that combine exquisite colors and enormous detailed subjects — with the intention of leaving his mark in urban areas like repeated mantras; hence his nickname.
