Self-taught, with the urge to tell stories from childhood, Victorien Liria, alias Maye, was born in Sète, France, in 1990. He first spoke in the streets of Montpellier with graffiti where he developed a research around lettering since 2004. Influenced by the local scene, he takes advantage of each meeting to continue his learning and succeeds in finding a place among his peers. His determination and talent allow him to quickly improve on the walls.
Maye goes from wall to canvas in 2013. He works on these two practices in a complementary way. Painting on canvas allows him to use the experiments he has developed on ephemeral supports and begin to build his work in a sustainable way. Unlike the wall, the canvas being made to last, he takes the opportunity to display his taste for detail and narration.
