What a difficult task to present my work. I can speak about my influences or rather about my tastes, in painting first of all, Jerome Bosch
certainly who gave me the desire for taking pencil and brushes, Philippe Druillet for his universe. And then Magritte and Dali and all
others of Dürer with Rembrandt. The music plays also an essential part in my work, that of Brittany, of the Maghreb, the blues of Robert
Johnson in Rory Gallager, rock' N roll of Elvis with U2 while passing by Stones and Led Zepellin. And finally Mozart for the joy and
sometimes the darkness of his music.
