Born in Chevreuse (Yvelines-France), in december 24th 1971. I live in the South of France where I work mostly on painting or drawing, sometime in a very scattered way. I am at first fond of comics, fantastic movies, rock'n roll, special FX and other things... as cardboard... The first painter who touched me was Munch but quickly I got to like many others as Otto Dix ; Hopper ; Fussly ; Turner..... Mostly Edward Hopper, finally... I am also attracted by totalitary art (and it's aesthetics) and interrested by propaganda (which questions me). I 've been painting for about 30 years, inspired by different kind of things but mostly everyday life (and night...). The street was one of my first subject of preference, for exemple one of my early picture, in 1988, was called "Side Walk 1" and even if I never made "Side Walk 2" (yet ?), I did other frames with titles as "Bus Stop Up Town" ; "Bus Stop Down Town" ; "Rush Hour" ; "Commuters" etc, as I lived in New Orleans for two years around 1990... At the same time I've always been attracted by fantasy, imaginary subjects, some ways to watch life through a fantastic filter (extrapolation). Internal life, for sure, has also been influent on some more introverted paintings as my series of Abysses... All those paintings, together, are finaly like a sort of full diary in pictures... Those 10 past years, my paintings are mainly representing cardboard boxes and I became sure that I totally owned this subject as if it defined me now. Is it like some way to symbolically tidy up everything that I made until now ? Or some kind of unconscious desire for a moving ? Some would even say that it's about marchandising and globalisation...In 2017, I was glad to see 3 of my cardboard box paintings entering the RAJA ’Art collection, at the headquarters of a major packaging company (RAJA). All these cardboard boxe painting have surrely many meanings, but it is mostly the pleasure to paint sensual nuances, like if it was cubic skin... Through cardboard, I still like flesh !
