Interested by comics when I was a child, I started to draw in the eighties, imitating my favourite comics authors.
I ended studies being an engineer for a living but carried on artistic practices: watercolor then oil and acrylic in the nineties. I saw that playing with various materials opened a lot of possibilities.
I worked in Grenoble, Milan and I have lived in Aix-en-Provence for 20 years.
I illustrated books, wrote a comic, made storyboards, animated part of a film on the death of Salvatore Allende, but my passion is painting.
I like to experiment and often let the materials express themselves sometimes with unwanted mixes that will give an unexpected and interested result.
I now use many medias such as paper, tape, paint, watercolors, pastel, acrylic and oil paint, graphite, pen, cement , glues, chemicals, metal etc…
I try also not to forget about drawing which is often the key to a good painting; Drawing remains the structure whereas color and materials give the mood, the power and the feeling.
My main subjects are people. I use imagery inspired by many universes from Noir movies and books, music, comics but also classical painting.
I am preparing an exhibition called “Dark L.A.” where I will show my vision of Los Angeles through 2 extraordinary authors: James Ellroy and Bret Easton Ellis.
