PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF
A self-taught painter, I was born in Paris in 1971. I live in a geometric and colorful world.
My experience and my inspiration come from urban arts, where I began. I developed a very personal graphic code and I use the energy from the colors as a therapy.
I have been working for many years on reflections based on networks and connections.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR WORK?
Easy: it is geometricolorismohappyflashy or, in other terms, relative atomic painting, i.e. E=mc16.
It is the result of different influences that go from graffiti to contemporary painting, with artists such as Phase 2, Futura 2000, Dark, Keith Haring, Paul Klee, Nikki de Saint-Phalle, Dubuffet, Mondrian, to cite only the most famous.

PLEASE SHARE WITH US YOUR WORKING PROCESS
I discovered that symbols form a language.
My symbolic language talks about nature and universe. I believe that geometric forms associated with the simplicity and the rigor of structures and composition can lead to a great purity.
Nevertheless, the same forms show an infinite possibility of combinations and can also express dynamism and a great vitality. Using the same elementary shapes — lines, circles, squares, triangles, polygons, and curves, most of the major characteristics of human beings can be described, such as purity, contemplation, spirituality, calm, joy, dynamism, consciousness, creativity, imagination…

HOW DOES YOUR ENVIRONMENT INFLUENCE YOUR ART?
The cosmos give me instructions to make peace on earth by telepathy or in my dream.

ANY LAST WORD?
Today, I’m working on these original designs that involves powerful creations using geometrical shapes full of colours. Now, we are heading from the same graphic support, towards a meditation and a reflexion to reach another sphere of conscience, guiding you to an indefinite world of networks twisting and crossing each other applied in certain spaces, which are strictly logical, at the same time subtle and obstinate to those who create their own direction. Peace on earth brothers and sisters.

HOW DOES YOUR ENVIRONMENT INFLUENCE YOUR ART
No not really, only a bit when painting a wall. If the wall is a certain size or shape or whatever… sometimes you change your work to fit into or work with the space.
