Painting is my lifestyle


To be able to express his thoughts, an artist needs to reach for his technical independence; he must develop a style that gives him the chance to express everything he wants. What is inspiring me for the making of these kinds of paintings is the expression of complex surrealistic feelings. Intangible, they are visual obsessions that the deepest part of me instinctively needs to translate into paintings. I try to develop my own personal vision on matters like instinctivemental phenomenons, the mysteries of artistic creations, mystic and human myths.

Because this is the most serious kind of work I am doing, humour and derision are important aspects of it. Even if they get provocative or dark, I still consider the idea behind it positively. Those pieces of work are also telling a story, a unique personal fiction.
