About The Artwork

20 years ago, I spent some days in Essaouira, Maroco. The owner of the riad told me he saw a funny scene in the little street close to the harbour : one boy running with a very big seabass over his head, with many other Children running with happy and laughing with him. One neighbour explained this boy found this big fish in a seashore hole and caught it simply with his hands, and no fishing rod (he was may be too young to have one himself). At this time, I realized a wood, cardboard and paper sculpture, in memory of this young fisher...and called him Youssouf. Very recently I repaired it (passably damaged by years) and now Youssouf is ready for a new life...

Born 1967, I'm a self-taught artist, fan of painting, illustration and comics. I read art books very early and began selling my watercolors at 15. I still paint every day, as a disciplin ; I particulary appreciate the idea hiden behind the painting, the real meaning ; why I've a special feeling for old way of paintings (allegories and symbolic paintings at the end of middle age in Europe by example). Also very interested in allegoric and surrealistic movement. In fact I don't see real fronteers between the expressions as painting, comic drawing, and animation movies. For me, all of them tries to create emotion in public eyes. All opens our minds and souls. Theses differents influences probably guided me to a narrative/imaginary expression. In my mind the painting here to express something, as a poetic icon, must catch our imaginary, and bring you to the artist mind world, as a proposal or an invitation. My favourites subjects are the journey (or the seasons) of life, the group or communities, also poetic visions of old time. I like to evocate the feminity, not really in nude representations (many others are doing much better than me) but in a allegoric way, visions of the women power of life, painting them as fertile gardens of humanhood, or in a dynamic moovement, riding cats, birds, to catch something they are looking for. I also consider the childhood as the first garden of life, so I like to paint theses kind of themas, as autobiographic or my own children life when they were young. My way of art is to celebrate the humanhood through the several prisms of poetry, humor and tenderness. And build poetic and memory bridges between us and the olders, others times. As an artist I think the power of realizing painting gives a responsability, not to create pollution in people's minds especially in the years, when owners have it in front of the eyes all days. And by opposite, create positives, warm and tenderness visions of love, or -why not- funny paintings.
