Mode 2 was born in Mauritius in 1967 and moved to London in 1976, where he did most of his schooling. He has been drawing for as far back as he can remember and spent his youth deep into comics, sci-fi and fantasy literature, as well as role-playing games such as “Dungeons & Dragons”.
Throughout his life this has remained his main discipline, no matter where he went in the world, or what he was getting involved in. When he finished his ‘O’-level exams in summer ‘84, he started hanging out at Covent Garden, in central London, which was then the main hub of the London Hip Hop scene. Because of his ability at drawing, he decided to pick up the spraycan, and from that moment onwards, set about making a name for himself within the global hip hop community. see more on WideWall
