This artist creates secret and imaginary worlds. A man of great sensitivity, he paints, draws, writes and reads voraciously. He wanted to create and reverse trends.
A travel enthusiast, he likes to explore. His trips are full of emotions, encounters, and dialogues that influence his work, such as his trip to China where he discovered that his perception of colour had changed.
The painter says that his artistic process is influenced by the relationship ‘between the intimate and the memory, the memory and the trace, dreams, and icons.’
