Interests and Personality

BiographyI was born in Paris, France, where I used to live until the age of 19 and decided to go to the USA to start a career as an artist. Things were not easy there, and after a (too) short period of time wandering around like a hobo, visiting the whole country, I came back to France to study litterature and arts. I've painted since I was a child and always thought my destiny would be to paint for a living : I just can't help it, I just need to paint at least one picture each day. I opened my own gallery in M├╝llheim, Germany, in 2002. I want my paintings to be spontaneous and genuine, the way I work is often energetic, sometimes violent, especially when I paint people and cities. The human beings look most of the time weird, sad, aggressive or worried, it seems they have something to tell you about their existence in a world where "tears are hung on every tree" (Woodworth) Now I would go for a great exhibition in a prominent city. Please, HELP ME!!
InterestsI do love painting while listening to good music.
MusicNo style in particular. Sometimes classical, sometimes jazz, hip hop, rock...
FilmsMidnight cowboy, scarecrow, down by law and Betty Blue
BooksValentin tout seul, On the road, A street car named desire...
HeroesI don't like heroes in particular. The only ones I can see are the ordinary people who do good things without the media to help them being famous.
