Flavien Demarigny, also known as Mambo, is a Los Angeles-based artist with international influences. Mambo was born in Chile to a French father and a Hungarian mother, and was raised in Latin America. He started his artistic career in Paris in the mid 80s as a street artist and graphic designer. He cites funk and jazz music as well as the New Wave era style as important creative influences during his time in France. This early period in his art practice continues to inform his canvas paintings and murals.
Mambo consistently releases videos to allow people to get closer to his state of mind when he is sketching or creating new work.
