Charles Leval, better known as Levalet, is a French street artist whose career has been on the rise for the last few years. Although his works are all over France, his prime territory is Paris.
His pieces interact with their surroundings in a surprising and often magical way, and frequently include props or other three-dimensional objects.
The artist spent his childhood in Guadeloupe, surrounded by its rich Franco-Caribbean influences, and he discovered graffiti culture in his early teens. At the age of 17, Levalet moved to Strasbourg to study painting and animation. But it wasn’t until he moved to Paris in 2012 that he started to work as a street artist.
