Auckland Live and Art2M would like to thank:
Colab at Auckland University of Technology (AUT), the Embassy of France, and the France New Zealand Friendship Fund for their support of Waterlight Graffiti in Auckland.
About the artist
Waterlight Graffiti is created by French artist Antonin Fourneau and after worldwide success, this mock up is now part of a research project led by the French artist on water sensitive materials, and the use of them in our architecture.
In 2005 Antonin Fourneau received an Art Diploma from Aix-en-Provence Art School followed in 2007 by a post Diploma in Interactive Art in the Design School of ENSAD Paris. Since his graduation, Antonin has been focused on interaction and relation with popular culture. He takes part in various exhibitions related to digital arts and is currently a professor of Digital Arts in ENSAD and guest teaches in several schools like CAFA-Beijing.
