Presentation & Biography

Born in 1951, this Frenchman of Catalan origin, was brought up in the Alger area. The Algerian War, its horror visions turned a happy childhood into a necessary departure in 1963 for a French new life.
Since then, his whole life would only be grieving, leaving, rebuilding but also great passions.
Despite the fog of Bordeaux , he'll keep the Mediterranean sun in his heart.
At the age of 20, his hopes to become a professional footballer will be destroyed by a serious car accident.
In his life as in his paintings, darkness and light have always been a main part of his background.
Self-taught painter, engineer as a feeding need, he's lived for 20 years in the south of France, always been tied between a Cartesian and a spiritual duality, he humbly recognizes " the Women of his life" taught him everything.
All alone in front of his white board, he experiments new techniques to extract from the depth of his imaginary world the warmest colors, sometimes violent, as his life.
His work, born from his dreams and his love for life is an invitation to an inner travel.
He is registered at the "Maison des Artistes" under the number M640523.
