When people hear or discover that I paint, they ask me : do you make art work ?
My answer is : No
Their reaction : Oh, disappointed or bored.

Can only the Art School provide a gift or an interest for art ?
I am one of those who think the opposite

I think it's very impersonal to write down my biography... and what's more, I'm not dead yet.

So I would simply say that it are the circumstances of life that made me do these paintings.

So, thank you life, sometimes hard and cruel, but so enriching when it goes on.

The "Emergency Committee"

The "Emergency Committee"


The "Emergency Committee"

Two years ago, my workshop was located in my cellar.... Too small and not functional... A friend of mine, himself an artist, proposed to join him in his warehouse.
With Miguel Donvez, we are sharing a workshop of 250m2. It includes a part for creation (see picture) and
a part which can be used for exhibitions.

This warehouse looks like a factory, I can find anything that will make my creative ideas come to life. With this place, I can manage to work with bigger sizes, shapes and new artistic experimentations.

You might wonder why it is called "La Cellule de Crise"? (in english Emergency Committee)

When everything goes wrong, everything
is ugly, when I feel like I do not fit anywhere, this is the place where
I retire and create.
