Originally from Nice, France, ERNESTO NOVO became interested in art in all of its forms from an early age. His Vietnamese roots and his entourage in his youth gave him a culturally fluid identity that he transmits through his art.
It is only natural that he decided to study the arts where he first discovered painting followed by large scale painting. He then started to create his first fresco murals across the world. He then joined the Ecole of Arts Deco of Strasbourg before moving to Paris to get started with the digital medium.
Several years later, he got back to this passion and started coloring the ground of the streets. It is in being active and being in interaction with the public that ERNESTO NOVO feels his best. The interaction is his payment.
Today ERNESTO NOVO is an artist known for his collaboration with renowned brands and who is very engaged in causes that are important to him.
In his evolving style, ERNESTO NOVO makes his portraits come to live by mixing pop colors, African art, hip hop, jazz and reggae.
