Born in 1972, in the north of France, the art adventure begins in early childhood, where a school drawing takes on another dimension through this childish anecdote: a cloud is not a white task. It has volume, nuances. The "flat" designs take shape.
Drawing lessons make sense: understanding the anatomy of a body and trying to reproduce its curves, trying to always answer in a particular way to a given subject, discovering the great artists who made history ...
The artistic path is no longer in doubt: after studying Plastic Arts, then Cinema-Audiovisual, it is the entrance to the Art Superior School, specialized in graphic design.
There the discovery of modern art deepens with the meeting of abstract art.
Classically trained, it is incomprehension but also attraction.
The practice of painting is an ordeal. The question of the subject is constantly asked ...
I became a multimedia professional for the next 20 years, I held various positions of artistic direction in visual communication to then create two companies, one in video games and another in 3D applications.
In painting, after a few tries during this entire period, it is at the beginning of 2018 that it becomes necessary.

An experience which unquestionably participates in today's creation, where painting is action.
Take up the question of existence. A painting as an instrument of intuition, an expression of the body to bring awareness of propositions: Questioning God, listening to the wisdom of our nature, sublimating the pain ... and always thanking life.
Painting is an offering to honor. We do it as something sacred, in search of what the mystery of gestures, silence, forms says, beyond all academicism, all learning other than what experience constructs.
Through four collections today, Cosmogonies, Abyss, Archetypes and Fragments, it is a journey where the mind changes, where art liberates.
The subject is erased to search for it in the exercise. Bring a presence in artworks. To be in the painting until it gets lost; scratching, tearing, taking off to return to the source and, strong of this past, tracing, covering and sticking until the convergence of all these moments.
This story will then continue beyond the painter ...
