Enfant terrible Andre Saraiva is many things to many people. To the Parisian police, he’s Mr. A, a legendary graffiti artist so recognizable he’s no longer able to work in his hometown.

To the international art circuit, he’s the guy throwing the grittiest art fair parties. To fashion followers, he’s the Purple cover boy with the signature paint-splattered jeans and dark sunglasses. To the shiny young things in New York, Paris, London, and Tokyo, he’s the impresario behind the nightclubs Paris Paris, Le Montana, Le Baron Paris, Le Baron London and Beatrice Inn.

With his recent clothing line “Black Block” making waves, André is also a partner in the Hôtel Amour with Thierry Costes, of the Costes hotel and restaurant family; Le Baron projects in London and NY with Purple Mag editor Oliver Zahn, and, with the industrial designer Marc Newson, a branch of Le Baron in Tokyo.
