New graffiti March 2016

Lyfer

Lyfer, one of the most active writers in the 203 Crew, is known to do some canvas/gallery art, but streetwise is he strictly a graffiti artist. He is one of those artists who constantly reinvent themselves and don’t stick to only one style of writing. He explores, experiments and often surprises. Not only is he very talented, but he is also incredibly prolific. To give you an idea of the size of his body of work, know that the gallery below, despite being quite extensive, only features a fraction of the work Lyfer has left in our streets, alleys and abandoned spaces over the past few years.

For more photos than what is featured here, or if you are curious about his studio work, check out his Instagram and Tumblr pages.

Lyfer, un des graffeurs les plus actifs du crew 203, pratique la peinture sur canevas, mais dans la rue il ne fait que du graffiti. Une de ses forces est de savoir toujours se réinventer et de ne pas se limiter à un seul style. Il aime explorer, expérimenter et surprendre. Il n’est pas que très talentueux, il est aussi très prolifique. Pour donner une idée de sa présence dans nos rues, ruelles et espaces abandonnés, sachez que la galerie-photo ci-dessous, bien que très garnie, ne présente qu’une fraction de ce que l’artiste a créé au cours des dernières années.

Pour en voir plus que ce que je présente ci-dessous, ou si vous êtes interéssé par son travail en studio, jetez un coup d’oeil à ses pages Instagram et Tumblr.

contribution to multi-artist murals

Les pièces de cette section de la galerie sont présentées en ordre chronologique inverse, de la plus récente à la plus vieille que j’ai photographiée.

This 203 crew wall for the 2019 edition of Under Pressure was done by Lyfer, Ekes, Opire, Arnold, Borrris and Trak, with tags by Trak, Phare, Hitem, Yesir, Masek and guests Axe Lalime, Soma and Peau.

The 203 crew wall for the 2017 edition of the Under Pressure Festival. The 203 Invader with the munchies is by Opire and the one with the giggles is by Arnold and Borrris. The top letters – actually numbers – are by Naimo, the ground ones by Ekes and all the wraparound is by Lyfer and Ekes plus probably a few more 203s…


throws

This section is meant to show throw-ups by Lyfer, but as you can see from the gallery below, the artist rarely contents himself with just a flat outline + fill. There’s almost always a bit of 3D depth given to his outlines.

Le throw est une pièce de graffiti rapide consistant généralement en un simple contour avec une seule couleur de remplissage. Lyfer ne peut se contenter de si peu pour les siens; comme on peut le voir dans la galerie ci-dessous, il ajoute souvent un peu de profondeur à ses pièces rapides en élaborant ses contours.

stickers

This is just a selection of all the Lyfer stickers that I have found over the past few years. The majority are sticker-tags, although I have occasionally found more elaborate ones such as the first few specimens shown below.

La gallerie ci-dessous ne présente qu’une sélection de la grande quantité d’autocollants de la main de Lyfer que j’ai trouvés au fil des années. La grande majorité sont à toutes fins pratiques des tags collés. Il m’est arrivé d’en trouver quelques uns plus élaborés, tels que les spécimens figurant en tête de liste ci-dessous.
