His passion for art goes back up to his childhood. He has always been interested in painting and also, sculpture, music... He made his first sketches 20 years ago. He worked with different materials (concrete, plaster, stone) before using metals.

His favorite artists are, among the others POLLOCK, Francis BACON, Nicolas de STAËL, SCHIELE...
He also loves litterature: Jacques PREVERT, Arthur RIMBAUD, Philippe DJIAN... Their texts have often inspired his art works.
