Mathias Bones

From exploring street art to skateboarding and urban hacking, Mathias Bones combines all disciplines into a single focus: a city that is reclaiming its rights. In his work, he likes to explore a world in perpetual motion. A keen observer of the emergence of urban countercultures, he made several episodes of the Web series 5 minutes (2014-2016) about graffiti for ARTE Creative, as well as two independent documentaries.
