Epsylon Point discovered a passion for street art at the time when it was starting to emerge in France, that is to say towards the end of the 1970s. The artist was then graduating from the school of Beaux-arts de Dijon and was looking for an activity that would allow him to fully express his art. After starting out as a photographer, he quickly turned to painting and almost by accident discovered the colored stencil while covering a screen with black paint on which he projected images.
