Created by San Artist Bio:
I am a self-taught French artist, working and living in London. For how long as I can remember, I have always showed a keen interest for architecture and arts, but opted for a scientific degree. I started to paint after completing my civil engineering degree in Paris, and never stopped.... I have been trying many techniques, from pottery to life drawing. My paintings are a joyful mix of all those techniques. I don't necessarily paint with conventional medias, but prefer to use and recycle any kind of materials that I can put my hand on, ranging from clay to potato or coffee ! Maybe as a tribute to my roots in the building industry, I like to "build" my paintings with lots of layers, adding, scratching, tearing sometimes. My primary inspiration comes from patterns found in natural and urban environment. I like to take photos of objects and landscapes, from an unexpected angle, which invites me to think differently when I paint. That's why I tend to think of my paintings as abstracts, but with a strong anchor to reality. Everything else is down to one's interpretation...
