I’m a drawing artist born in 1986 in Marseille, France, currently living and working in Montréal,Canada.
My work on paper develops an aesthetic of the mutation, both ethereal and visceral. I am interested in studying the principle of the living, in all its contradictions.
The blend of traditionnal illustration techniques (Watercolor, pencils, inkpen and printing) creates an hybrid and contrasted imagery. My work consists of the elaboration of internal landscapes, a topography of the human soul, its dark hidden recesses, its archetypes, its knots and its extravagant flowers.
Classical nudes and realistic elements become integrated into zones of abstract organic, detailed textures ; anatomy and botanical are transformed into a complex structure, embodying drives and unconscious feelings. These elements grow, interpenetrate and deteriorate according to a natural entropic rhythm.
This meticulous work of accumulation and desintegration gives birth to a dreamlike and exuberant world of nostalgia, sexual fantasies and mystic states.
