Who or what is the biggest inspiration for your art?
I’m inspired by what’s around me to translate what’s inside me. I can have the greatest interest in banal things because I am able to transform them and make them singular.
Please tell us more about your working process and the way you approach new artworks?
It’s strange because every time I start a new painting I feel like it’s the very first painting I’m working on. My process is closer to construction than “classic” painting. I use a completely chaotic canvas printing technique that leaves a lot to the accidental. Each new painting is therefore a discovery, which invites me to adapt rather than direct.
What motivates you the most in your artistic journey?
It’s the surprise. Making links between the different studies that are in progress in mystudio. Solving problems. Creating harmony in chaos. Readjusting.
Who or what has recently impressed you?
My nine months old son Paul.
Which artist, dead or alive, would you want to have a beer with?
If we assume that we can drink beer with dead people, I would like to drink a beer with Jacques Brel.
How do you spend your free time besides artistic work?
I like watching movies, cycling, swimming in the sea, reading, eating, travelling, especially to Japan. But I consider all these activities to be artistic work.
Do you have any dream projects in mind that you would like to do in the future?
I would like to exhibit my work in Japan.
