André aka Monsieur André aka Monsieur A, born Andre Saraiva is a French graffiti artist. He paints a distinctive stick-figure character, usually with a top hat and an 'X' in place of one of the eyes. He started doing graffiti in 1985.

Born in Sweden, he became famous in the late 90's with Mr A, a cartoonish character with a round head, a cross and a circle for his eyes, a big smile and very long legs, which he used to draw all over the streets of Paris. He is part of the early parisian graffiti scene along with Invader and Zeus, and he appears in Banksy street art movie, Exit Through the Gift Shop. His distinctive style, poetic and joyful, and his use of pink color, made him quickly stand out. In the early 2000s, he developed the Love Graffiti series.

André was formerly married to French/American electro artist, Uffie.[1]

While he is said to be very reclusive, he appears in the documentary Exit Through The Gift Shop. His appearance was shot by Thierry Guetta, a self-proclaimed French artist living in Los Angeles.
