John Kviar discovered graffiti during his youth in Paris area, near Melun, where he grew up. After a few years of drawing, it was in 2002 that he began to do graffiti on walls.

In 2009 he created a couple of friends the artistic collective Thérapicturale. He started to create the characters in human form, but without body. In recent years, Kviar sets his stories in pictures on canvases with oil painting. By freeing himself of any distinctive character to humans, he imposes -through his characters- true identity both unique and amazing.
