Shapes in bright colours try to "catch the light, to grow, to expand." Multiple curves are spread over the canvas.
The artist tries to represent life in motion, as if time had frozen. With his works, he tries to convey a message: "Nothing is fixed, you must provide yourself the means to have the life you dream of. There is nothing worse than wasting your life". Different forms intertwine and show this sometimes tortuous road, which can lead us to our dreams. "We are trying to move forward, sometimes we turn away from the right path, but we always take it again". At the age of 30, the artist has exhibited in many galleries in France and abroad: Belgium, Luxembourg, Portugal etc. "It's like a game of chess, each move is anticipated. I start painting when I am sure to succeed." He mixes his colours very carefully. An "exhausting" job which gives him no respite. Each brush stroke is carefully thought out. "When I start a painting, it is already finished. "For the first time, he is showing in the Vieux-Lille gallery, sketches in ink, pastel or charcoal, different stages of his work.
