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
From 2016, Royalclub has started partnering with artists & illustrators from around the world.
In the past few years he collaborated with brands like Nike, Chivas, Louboutin, Longines, Diesel, Lanvin, on various projects including Illustrations, murals artistic performances, VR , installations etc.
