    An excerpt from An Interview with Blek le Rat:

My Name is Blek le rat, I started stenciling small rats in 1981 in Paris (where I still live) after having seen the graffiti in NYC during a trip in 1971. I have always known that the movement we now call urban art was going to be important, I think it is the most important art movement of all times. Constantly renewing itself despite the oppression of the authorities, there is no city in the world without someone leaving its mark in the urban landscape.
