"Oral painter and word carver », Michel Giroud aka Gerwulf El Coyote has been a major figure in action poetry since the 1970s. His work takes the fragmented form of books, readings, actions, interventions, meetings, circles and magazines. He thus realizes an old project that he named in 1990 Patata (patatology) or PTT (Totally Total Poetry) where all these activities are articulated in a sphere in permanent movement. In 1991, he founded the Nomadic University and in May 1997 the festival ‘Mille voix / 1000 voies’ and the encyclopedia of the Eternal Network. Test writer, tyre artist, oral painter, long-distance speed runner, word carver, he appears in the form of El Coyote and werewolf as an archaic singer of scream-singing.

Gerwulf, founder and guardian of the Imperium Angelicum Magnificum (IAM) is the Carolingian ancestor of the Dauphinois Michel Giroud, historian and theoretician of the avant gardes, author of essays on Audiberti, Nougaro, Vostell, Haussmann, Gette, Filliou. In parallel with his work as an artist and performer, Michel Giroud is a publisher, he founded the collections L'oeil Absolu au Chêne, Projectoires à Champ Libre, Trajectoires at Jean-Michel Place and the collection L'Ecart absolu at Presses du Réel, which he has directed since 1998.
