Biography of Andre Saraiva

André Saraiva was born in 1971 in Uppsala, Sweden. In 1981, his family moved to Paris. At the age of 13, he started doing graffiti in his neighborhood. In 1992, he appeared on television, answering questions from a journalist following the tags he had made ​​in the “Louvre” underground station. In 1994, he started drawing “Mr. A”, André’s iconic character, easily recognizable with his slender shape and rounded face, wearing a top hat. During these years, he drew this character all over the world. It could also be seen on many labels (Orangina…), and through collaborations with such brands as The Kooples, Kitsuné and Louis Vuitton.
But André has many facets… His relations and contacts allowed him reach a more artistic, glamour world. At the end of 2004, he became the owner of the “Baron” night club in Paris, and opened other clubs in New York, London and Tokyo in 2012. André holds shares in the Amour Hotel in Paris and was appointed art director of the “L’Officiel Homme” magazine. He does not forget the artistic part of his life, organizing exhibitions, including at Colette’s in 2010, and “Andréopolis” in 2012.
