André Saraiva is a world-renowned graffiti artist and creative director. Born in Uppsala, Sweden. Grew up in Paris. André began his lifelong passion for graffiti, tagging his name all over the city's walls. Mr. A, his alter ego, quickly became his signature character in the art world on six continents. Fashion brands Chanel and Louis Vuitton jumped on his band wagon.
