Les ancêtres des graffeurs genevois s’exposent sur l’eau,Tribune de Genève, 01.10.2017.
Timer started graffiti in 1989 in Geneva after watching the film “Style Wars” in the Gradient Orientation Cycle. He began to carry out various colored frescoes on the walls of the School of General Culture as well as in the Orientation Cycle of the Gradelle and in other districts of Geneva.
In 1992, he went to live in the United States, in San Diego, where he created various frescoes for commercial premises (clothing stores, surf shops as well as several nightclubs), while continuing to paint illegally on the street. He stayed in San Diego for more than six years, going back and forth to Geneva.
In 1999, he moved to New York in the Fort-Green district of Brooklyn. For more than a year, he actively painted in New York City with renowned artists in the world of graffiti. Timer is influenced mainly by the graffiti movement of the New York School. In 2001, he left New York to settle in Miami in the South Beach district. He creates various frescoes in the street and in nightclubs.
Timer returned to Geneva in 2002 because he found a job at the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization), while continuing to paint in his spare time. During this period, he took part in various exhibitions with the EDK collective. In 2013, Timer left WIPO and devoted himself full time to painting. He went to live in Bangkok for more than a year where he created several facades in the city.
After more than 26 years of graffiti activity across Europe, Asia and America, Timer is exhibiting in galleries while continuing to actively paint on the street.
