Meet the artist

André Saraiva

Graffiti was the first way in which artist André Saraiva made his mark on the world. André was born in Uppsala, Sweden, and grew up in Paris tagging his name on the neighbourhood walls. As an entrepreneur, André has created curated experiences and spaces, as well as founded hospitality ventures including the world-famous “Le Baron” nightclubs and boutique hotel group Hotel Amour. While André is a pioneer of hotels, restaurants, and nightlife, André has never put his spray can away.

The story

Hotel Amour

"Initially made for my hotel, naturally it got the title ‘The Amour Bin’. And the name resounds even more, when I learned that the 80-year-old bin is born out of a true love story." - André Saraiva

The Character

Meet Mr. A

There was a significant turning point in the history of street art when André introduced a character into his graffiti - the cheerful, top-hatted stick figure, and now iconic Mr. A. As the first graffiti artist to paint a character in place of the traditional tag name, he quickly became known as Paris’ most active street artist. "Mr.A is my alter-ego, but he also represents everyone’s best friend and lover." - André Saraiva

DETAIL

Handsfree

The pedal bin was not designed in the strict traditional sense, but got its visual expression in response to a series of functional criteria; one being a pedal for a hands-free operation.
