I started studying film and psychology in London and New York, I left for India and realized that painting was vital to my life.  I sent Marietta Gual in Majorca some pictures and five months later she exhibited my work. I worked for ten years with the Sollertis Gallery and then Rodolphe Stadler in Paris; later I choose another life and exhibited in all the countries where I lived: South Africa, Dubai, Bahrain, Beirut.“

“Blue and white, they are the infinite, the sea the sky, what I imagine in another world.”

  “Painting for me is like a search, like a prayer a combination of the environment and of what I see and feel.”

Les Carnets

“The notebooks are a process of concentration to focus on. When I travel I never take any supplies with me and always buy them locally, I do a lot of work on paper.   I always produce exhibitions in whatever part of the world I have a show. I like meeting the local artists, experience their cultures and languages, I usually stay in that country for quite a while afterward.”

  “When I paint I am elsewhere”
