1)What inspires your art?
My creations are inspired by all I’ve seen during my studies in fine art school. And I think my pasion for comics and anime adds another perspective and another way of thinking in relation to my work So everything inspire me, the things I see, the things I smell, the things I hear, the people i meet, the project I’m working on. For sure, fine arts and contempory art inspire me a lot, but graffic design also. I love to analyze artwork in photoshop magazines, love to see post-prod effects, animations.
2)What is the relationship between technique and content in your work?
An instinctive relationship I think. Sometimes the content doesn’t need a complicated technique, or the complicated technique ruin the content.
The fact is to always step back to make the good the technique choice compared to the project.
3)Describe your first experience of making art and how it affected your life’s journey
The First experiences in making something with a pen, were with my dad. During that period I was totally immersed in the dinosaure frenzy. I make drawing of all the dino that I’ve seen in the books. I clearly remember this time !
4)Describe your most recent experience of making art.
I begin by choosing a theme. Then I fed me with different approach allready made. Make some questions about it. After,I take my pencil and I throw these things out of my head on the paper. I collect ideas, I shape them, enough to drive me crazy, Then, I start drawing shapes and paterns for my new work, and convert them in vectored or pixelated images.
5)Take us on a guided tour through a day in your life as an artist
Have a cup of coffe, switch on this computer, lost my mind in the muddled conscience of the web, go back to earth, take my pencil and try to create something new, something that I want to show to others.
