Sebastien "Mr. D" Boileau was born in Versailles, France. Mr. D was influenced by the American Pop Art and early Graffiti movement of the 60s, 70s, and early 80s and began his artistic endeavors in Paris in 1987 at the age of 14. In the early 90s he began to travel the world painting in remote countries like Sierra Leone, Tunisia, Senegal, and many western destinations. In 1995, Mr. D was invited to participate in his first contemporary art group show in Paris.
Mr. D immigrated to the United States in 1998 and in 2000 launched what is now a highly successful “Street Art inspired” mural company in Houston Texas, “Eyeful Art Murals and Designs”, serving both the public and private sectors. Mr. D’s signature style is known as “Canpressionism” a neo-impressionist style primarily done with spray paint and street art techniques such as “tagging and paint dripping" and creating a “urban impressionism” like texture.
After nearly 30 years as an artist, the stigma in regard to Urban Art remains. Mr. D wants to change people’s perception. His artistic and personal goal is to use his skills, experience, and credibility to demonstrate “Urban Art as Fine Art” approach while connecting with people around him.
