Niels Shoe Meulman est né en 1967 à Amsterdam et est un artiste pionnier du graffiti européen des années 1980. Ce que Shoe canalise dans l’espace et dans le temps n’est pas un nouveau système d’alphabet, mais bien une invitation à redevenir spectateur des mots, à étudier les trois forces de leur nature : les caractères individuels et leur arrangement, la signification du mot et les imaginations de l’artiste. En 1983, avec l’arrivée du hip hop en Europe, Shoe rencontre alors des writers new-yorkais comme Dondi White, Rammellzee et Futura 2000 qui vont renforcer son implication dans le mouvement graffiti. Shoe allie ses différentes passions : le graffiti, l’écriture et la calligraphie qu’il définit comme Calligraffiti, nom de sa première exposition personnelle en 2007 à Amsterdam.
