"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.
