“Despite the range of his work however, the tie that binds all of his visuals remains as consistent and strong as his striking aesthetic.”
Hand-drawn type master Alexis Tyrsa went from graffiti artist to graphic designer and now works from his home in Paris. A Gobelins graduate, Alexis has carved a career for himself utilising his natural talent and unadulterated passion for the written word and the innumerable versions of hand-crafted typography he can create. Now working on print and digital commissions, Alexis attacks any kind of brief with a huge amount of energy and delivers polished, highly appealing digital and handmade work ranging from murals, posters, and enormous installations to small, detailed packaging designs. There’s a lot of people out there making typography like Alexis, but few if any can ape his natural ability.
