Work History
He is particularly interested in drawing as a genre that he puts in action and whose status he enriches by raising its sensitive experience. However, he is not a draughtsman in the classical meaning of the term. He experiments more than he draws, using iconic materials like graphite dust and paper. Even though his works are often monochromatic, the surface of the paper or of the wall becomes a delicate albeit metallic texture. The artist thus allows the drawing techniques to go beyond its traditional confines and expand in multiple shapes. The realizing process at the heart of his creation abolishes the boundary between drawing, sculpture and performance. He lives and works in London. Member of the Platform Roven, Contemporary Drawing magazine. Collaboration with the Post Graduate Program of the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris.
