BIO: Born in 1973, JP Malot, aka Shoot the Bank, attended a school of artistic and technical drawing for two years. However, finding the school too academic for his taste, he left and returned to his passion for spray painting, working on parade decorations, fashion storefronts, and palisades during a graffiti expo at the gallery of Agnes B, in addition to exploring wastelands, which were somewhat of a cult at the time.
Influenced by the biggest graffiti artists during his teenage years in Paris (Steph, Jonone, Futura 2000) and by the books "Subway Art" and "Spray Can Art" by the late 80s and early 90s, he was also attracted to the drawings and sketches of the great masters. He became increasingly interested in the abstract work of Paul Jerkins and its colors, and today, he fully embraces the underground culture. His current influences range from pop art, graphism, and fashion to his journeys, from which he brings posters from the streets to incorporate into his pieces.
His techniques are mixed, combining collage, aerosol, painting, stencil, serigraphy, markers, acrylics, drawings, and sculpted objects like bitcoin and his bitcoin grenades in pop colors, which he posts in the streets or sticks to other objects, using visual and pseudonyms as diverse tags or signatures to mislead his followers and meet his need to hide while creating new concepts and sometimes enigmas for the fans of street art.
His work can be found in cities like Paris, London, Berlin, Barcelona, Madrid, Palma, Malaga, Marbella, Ibiza, Napoly, Glasgow, Lagos, Amsterdam, Edinbourgh, Beijing, Sao Paulo, as well as among amateurs and collectors of urban and bitcoin art in the world.
