Artist Statement: “Painting for my is the first love. An important, pure love. Creating a painting, starting from the spasmodic research of a concept with which I want to send a message to transmit my message, it’s the base of my painting. The sculpture is my lover, my artistic betrayal to the painting. That voluptous and sensual lover that gives me different emotions, that touches prohibited cords…
For my “Urban Style” serie, I use the military camouflage sheet to support my paintings. Daily life is full of joys, but also of pitfalls, and many of us face it with a warrior spirit, as true fighters. “B-Boy” is its classic representation, a boy who must defend his desire to listen to music wherever he is.
