Ken also known as Keflione is a French artist & illustrator based in Shanghai.
He started writing graffiti as a teenager and soon leaned towards Street-Art that he felt was going to emerge in the following years. After a BA graphic design, he graduated from the prestigious Central St Martins school in London, with a MA Fine Arts. He settled down in Shanghai in 2011, after several art residencies around Asia (India, Brunei…).
His artistic work is largely influenced by skateboard culture, hiphop music, art deco & graphic design and he likes to use different techniques (brush, spray cans, paper paste) to create rich & detailed illustrations in a constant search for perfection & excellence.
In 2013 he cofounded art & design studio Royalclub to collaborate with big brands and agencies on commercial projects
In 2016 he cofounded Creme, an artist & illlustrators agency to represent artists from around the world.
In the past few years he collaborated with brands like Nike, Chivas, Louboutin, Longines, Diesel, Lanvin, on various projects including artistic performances, VR , installation, murals etc.
