Dimensions (frame): 59 x 79 cm. Dimensions (work): 56 x 76 cm. Speedy graphito, pseudonym of olive ricezo, is a French painter born in 1961, making the junction between free figuration and the street art scene of the 1980s.

In 2016, he achieved his best public betting auction record, confirming that urban art took an important place in the contemporary art market. The year 2016 marks his debut at the museum with his retrospective at the museum of touquet followed in 2018 by a retrospective at the Palais du Tau, a French national monument, and who knows what the suite holds for him.
