Joëlle Le Saux is an art historian, a teacher. She teaches fine arts at the Rennes 2 University and art history at the École Européenne Supérieure d'Art de Bretagne - Brest site, as well as a curator and an art critic. Her view on history favors linking cultural and aesthetic resurgences through the ages rather than strict chronology of events.
Transmission and mythology in graffiti is her observation of the essential documents and narratives of graffiti history, enlightened by anthropology. To make a comprehensive story of what is now a world-wide culture she uses various tales, dating all the way back to the origin of the movement in the USA until its resurgence in Eastern Europe in the 2000s. Joëlle Le Saux focuses on how spoken and written stories morph into myths.
