Franck Noto, better known under the pseudonym Zest, is a French artist born in Montpellier. Coming from a family sensitive to painting, he discovers the art of graffiti and tags in 1995, when he is not even fifteen years old, and quickly gets into the game. Now an abstract painter, his style remains very urban.

Zest's work synthesizes his different influences. It is structured by key elements, recurring throughout his work, which are bright and fluorescent colors, and the female body. The sensual curves of the latter contrast with the cubism of the forms and letters and get lost in a pictorial labyrinth, where suggestion prevails over representation.
Zest revisits the classic codes of graffiti, freeing himself from the conventions and rules previously established. He mixes styles and techniques, using brushes, spray cans, markers and rollers.
