Born in June 1982 in France, actually living in France and establishing an international life project made of Painting, Photography, New Media, Art Criticism and Art History, I attach a mighty importance to each life element in a Far Eastern organicist vision of existence.
Inner and outer, whole and one, a perpetual dialogue I just want to take part in. How? Through a search for both delectation and thought via an aesthetic based on chromati(ci)sm and on a well-developed brilliancy, to give my creations a full autonomy through their affirmation within their own dialogue with any environment (personal technique, no varnish, 90% : gouache only, 10% : sparkling paint and/or golden/silver paper, 2/3 of the time retouching more than with a simple contrast+ my photos : minimal post-Instant realization).
Long meditations and self-projections in life facts before an intense, fast, profuse or laconic, tangible action, a crystal ; always willing not to annoy any-thing (from a stone to a yelling person, a wind to a cell), crystals in order to contribute to a lucid and wide open universal smile.
My inspiration takes its roots in the alliance of modernity and tradition, of everyday life, philosophies and myths, of self-language and multi-language. I particularly am impregnated with Asian civilizations (Japan, China, Korea ...) and peoples, with Middle Ages, and with a part of 19th-20th Western centuries.
The miniaturist way to perceive Art (artist and viewer) is also one of the points I develop. Painting & taking photos as a writer, writing as a painter-photographer, 90% of my creations are,until now, small sized, and a lot of them present many details and paths to discover.
Along with the union between myth and daily life, the declaration of universality through individuality (and vise-versa) through an artistic search for the Instant in an action in motion between abstraction and figuration, gesture and non-gesture, void and Void, zero and Zero, is a characteristic of my will of fusion.
Concretizations : Crystals (unions between daily life and myth, motion and constancy, us).
In eleven words : Smile-Asceticism, Chroma, Crystal, Mirror, Isthmus, Instant (spherical lightning in which we are not just living but Being), Intercivilizational, Satori (Illumination), Fusion, For².
