Origin


Selftaught, I discovered painting when I was 30.I have always liked drawing and I practised on table corners, reproducing all kinds of photographies and great artists' drawings like the italian classics or Van Gogh with a pen, doing my best to get all shades of grey with this apparently not very subtle medium and taking advantage of its infaillible and accurate stroke, leaving no room for error.

However, it didn't matter because I gave importance to them only during the process of drawing. They didn't seem that important to me when they were finished.

I didn't mind if they were bad fruits, the only reason to give birth to them was the act of drawing..

At the same time, I looked at the masters' oil paintings through the ages with more and more attention, seeing in the end something very new for me in some Impressionnists, especially Claude Monet: the possibility to suggest nature through its light and to create extremely precise sensations with some oil color strokes, wich were mysteriously not very disciplined compared withthe result. So, when I thought I was attracted by the academic painting based on the form quality through the art of drawing - my work at that time - I felt compelled almost against my will to paint light and nature as soon as I was offered a box of oil paints and the necessary equipment to begin.

Four years later, I exhibited for the first time, showing about forty oil paintings. For this bulky amount of paintings, I decided to show them and try to sell my first works.
