He used all sorts of techniques: graffiti, posters, collages, stencil.
RNST is a street actor and serigraffichist, adept of alternative cultures, he explores and plays with urban art in various forms: graffiti, posters, collages, stencils. He really invested the street with screen printing (display) and stencil. His studio is a laboratory where he mixes recipes, colors and genres. The speech and the work of RNST are impregnated with two constants: provoc and romanticism. Of multiple influences, amateur of supports of all kinds and especially of recovery, his work of creation is a direct link between the street and the workshop. News and public space should not escape us, this is where the artist comes to position. RNST considers its creations as true bridges between the world and its intimate world in order to ask questions, disturb and question.
