Inspiration: 123klan

123Klan is a crew founded in 1992 by a couple of French graffiti artists : SCIEN (Sébastien) and KLOR (Carole). Originally from the North of France, they started in the 1990s with graffiti and then gradually evolved into graphic design and illustration. In 2007, they moved to Montreal and created their studio. They also developed the “Bandit-1$M” clothing brand.

Throughout these years, they were able to impose their style on the walls of the world, as well as collaborate with major brands such as Nike, Adidas, Playstation Coca Cola, Carhartt, Vans, Stussy, MTV… For over 20 years, their passion for graffiti has not waned. They still paint all over the world with other artists. Check out a few of their works below.
