In Paris, he did advertising films for Chanel, Lancome and Yves Saint Laurent. Painting is an integral part of his artistic Journey. From an early age, he was immersed in the painting of Flemish primitives, which impressed him and determined his approach to art and to spirituality. He was also attracted by Japan and the practice of Zen since the age of 15. His artistic approach, really nourished by this double culture, oscillates between photography, painting and drawing. An iconoclast artist, he questions through his artwork the status of the image and its relation to the visible.
