As subjective as it seems, can you describe your path ?
It started in my childhood, where I discovered the several ways of painting… One of them spoke to me and I decided to work with it, it was graffiti. I started by painting abstract shapes, lines, colors and effects… until I earned my place in the milieu by writing my name.
During the 2000’s I started to make shows, along with the new general passion for Street-Art. I was freshly graduated of a Master degree in artistic direction, and I had to make the choice between living by reason or living my dreams… I chose my dreams. After the poster collage in practiced with Jean Faucheur and the group Une nuit, I gathered my friends from VAO to invest a workshop at la forge in Belleville. Exhibitions followed each other in a regular path, with the first trips, the first residence… I don’t earn much money, but it’s such a sweat way to earn it in regard of the life I live. I paint, I party, everywhere and all the time. I want to live it all! Seven years have gone by when I left with the Atlasin a new workshop in the Lilas, it’s a new era. I became braver, more serious and more professional. The dream came true, I had to consider new goals. It was six years ago. Nowadays, I follow my path in the art world as exhibitions and encounters. It’s funny how the more I get closer to my goal the more the road seems to be long. Life is a performance!
Your work show a peculiar interest for gesture, what influences are hidden behind this interest?
Even though my heart was going to several types of representations, I feel closer to Action painting and lyric abstraction. In my opinion, its practice has no equal. Within it, gesture is prevailing and singular. Action painting is the human touch and the direct transmission from the painter to the spectator through ages, even if it fits in a larger scheme.
