Mathieu Tremblin is born in 1980 in Le Mans. He works and lives in Arles and Strasbourg, France. Inspired by anonymous, autonomous and spontaneous practices and expressions in urban space, Tremblin implements simple and playful actions in order to question the systems of legislation, representation and symbolization of the city.

He recently took to the streets of France on a mission to improve the legibility of ugly graffiti. Mimicking the scale, color, and layering of each tag, Tremblin created his own replica in a perfectly crisp font.
