LIVES AND WORKS
DATE OF BIRTH
I am a French artist, living in Munich.
I was born in the North of France, went to school and university there but I always felt that I was born in the wrong place. I found it sad, and boring. I had the dream to discover other countries, other people.
As soon as I came of age , I decided to move to Africa. I lived there for 10 years as a teacher. The time I passed there has strongly marked my sensibility and my vision of the world. I learnt to observe nature and the people around me .
Back in Europe I first continued my academic career in France and Munich and finally I made the step and decided to study arts and painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Versailles. I obtained the diploma in 2001.
After that I moved to Munich with my family and started to work as an artist. During this «European period» my paintings were shown in exhibitions in France (Versailles, Paris), in Germany (Munich, Heidelberg), and in Italy (Napoli).
In 2007 we had the great chance to move to India. The new strong impressions and images came like a shock to me. Travelling a lot through this immense country with such varied faces and working with street children in Old-Delhi I got to know better «Incredible» India and it was an endless source of inspiration.
I exhibited my Indian paintings in New Delhi and in Chandigarh, the city of Le Corbusier.
After the Indian experience I had the great opportunity to navigate 4 times in the Antarctic on the boat of a friend. This continent without inhabitants made of mountains, ice and water is an incredible contrast to the warm colors and the crowds of people in India. A series of blue-white paintings is the result of this discovery and has been exhibited in 2017 in Munich at the Institut Français
I’m now in Munich, often in the mountains and working in my artist’s studio. Every canvas is the beginning of a new travel… behind the appearances.
WHO I AM
I’m a painter who wants to tell about our world and let see what is behind the appearances .
