He became an eternal wanderer through the creation of spaces worldwide. Paris Match spoke about him "The popularity of this almost sexagenarian who feel one with nature, nomadic and constantly " amazed "with life is at his peak. He himself agrees having seduced a fashionable clientele of American, Belgian, and financial collectors but also tycoons from China, Singapore and Hong-Kong"(Elisabeth Chavelet, 2015). His first exhibition was at FIAC in 1982, with the Claudine Bréguet gallery. In 1989, the French State ordered a series of tapestries on the theme of Declaration of Human and Citizen Rights of 1789 for the bicentenary of the French Revolution. The creations were displayed at the Opera Bastille, Arche de la Defense, the National Assembly, the Aubusson Museum, the European Parliament and the Luxembourg Museum in Paris. Since November 6, 2015, his red bronze sculpture: Angel Bear, more than 7 meters in height which portrays a bear with wings, is placed on the Gare du Nord square in Paris. It evokes the downward spiral of polar bears due to global warming, one of his favorite themes.
