I am a contemporary artist with a background in architecture, living and working in Lyon, France.
My style is modern impressionist, semi-abstract and in some cases with expressionist influences.
I am fascinated by the explosive textures and the intense chromatic that you can explore and reinvent by working the medium of oil painting. The palette knife oil painting technique that I developed over the years confers expressiveness to my paintings and an amazing three dimensional aspect. It can be seen as a form of textural impressionism, as I use thick layers of oil paint to achieve a vibrant movement in my works.
Most of my oeuvre focuses on the city life and urban spaces. In addition, I enjoy applying and developing my skills through the exploration of other subjects as still lifes, flowers, animals, landscapes, figures.
I love to wander from one city to the next, to discover new places and to revisit the old and then to express these emotional experiences in my paintings. My professional training as an Architect has allowed me to study in depth and to grasp the City subject with all of its complexity. In my urban landscapes I merge the experience of architectural drawing concepts with the freedom, the strength and the energy that Palette Knife Painting allows me to express in a world of tones and colourful hues.
