Coming from a working-class neighborhood in the Parisian suburbs, Claude had the opportunity to experience various cultures and traditions, which gave him a different outlook on the world and ignited his curiosity. During his teenage years, Claude was fascinated with public graffiti art while riding public transportation. He participated in his first exhibition at the age of 16, using the pseudonym Nacks. His artwork reflects the diverse influences he has encountered throughout his life, including his passion for popular culture, street art, and the emotional complexity of childhood.
Cartoon icons such as The Simpsons, Mickey Mouse, Dragon Ball Z, and Pink Panther have made appearances in his works. Some of his paintings include symbols of prosperity and inscriptions like “Love” and “Just Exist” to deliver a positive message. Today his works are exhibited worldwide, including in renowned international galleries such as Artspace Warehouse, Los Angeles. Naguy Claude has built a successful art career with a focus on the audience beyond the insular art world and has managed to attract an increasingly impressive global collector base.
