“I hope to be a sensitive and precise observer of nature and the city, careful to explain the variations in light. My watercolors of urban scenes restore the historical beauties of Paris or Venice, but also their unusual and mysterious sides.” Graduated from the Superior National School of Decorative Arts in Paris in 1982, the artist began his artistic career as a cartoonist in various magazines. Artistic director of several important Parisian advertising agencies, he is still an artist known for his realistic and poetic watercolors.
Awarded at the 11th biennial of the Belgium Watercolor Fair. First prize at the 32nd Salon de Chartres in France. 1st prize of painting at the 32nd Salon of Saint Germain les Corbeil.
After several exhibitions in Paris, the artist has exhibited his works in Japan since 2011 with the Suiha-Tokyo Gallery.
