Beautiful, sweet, elegant, simple but subversive pieces like my Living room porn: my secret sexual desires, encoding by the superposition of multiple layers of typography, you can hang in your living-room. Nobody is gonna understand what is on your wall, but you will, because I’m giving the translation the collector who buy this piece. It is a secret between you and me. There is always two level of reading in my art pieces. I want to put beauty, desires and freedom in your livingroom.

How do you go about developing your work?

It generally came about a pulsion, something I need to do, I need to say, a medium I need to experiment. That is why I’m using a lot of different medium. My art is about life and life is movement. After that I follow a very unique and strict process of creation, with precises technics.  Back and forth between drive and rigor. Perhaps because my background is a mix between art and design.

The rigor of the draw of European designers and the creativity of the middle age master of painting like Jérôme Bosch.
