A legend of Parisian culture is gone.


Tic, a street art figure known for his silhouettes of sexy and poetic brunette women stencilled on the walls of the capital in particular, died Sunday of an illness at the age of 66, announced his family at the AFP.

Born to a Tunisian immigrant father and a Norman mother, Radhia Novat, her real name, began printing her art in 1985 in the streets of Butte-Montmartre – where she grew up – Marais, Montorgueil and Butte -aux-Cailles, after a stay in the United States.

She collaborated with the fashion world

“I came from street theatre, I liked this idea of ​​art in the street”, explained in 2011 to AFP this visual artist, with a matte complexion and beautiful black hair, like her heroines.

“I said to myself at first: 'I am going to write poems'.

Then: ''We need images with the poems''.

I started with self-portraits, then I continued towards the other women”, added the one who accompanied her stencils with incisive legends like “I put on wall art to bombard words hearts”.

Regularly exhibited since 1986 in France and abroad, Miss.

Tic, whose pseudonym comes from the character Miss Tick, the witch from the "DuckTricks Band" created by Carl Barks for Disney, has experienced long years of galley and trouble with the law, the tag or the stencil being considered as a deterioration of property.

For example, it was stopped in 1997 but ended up attracting the attention of major brands in the 2000s, particularly in the fashion world (Kenzo, Louis Vuitton).

In 2007, she signed the poster for Claude Chabrol's film "La fille coupé en deux", while La Poste produced stamps inspired by her stencils in 2011. Some of her works were acquired by the Victoria and Albert Museum, in London, and the Contemporary Art Fund of the City of Paris, recalls its website.
