I am fascinated by the state of being connected with each other in a city like New York.
I imagine the ways in which people, nature, and objects can interact with one another to form more or less complex compositions
that operate as a map of our emotions or feelings.
By painting abstract images of spiritual or moral dilemmas about ethical reasoning, values & choices in life, I dedicate my work to reveal these interwoven systems of humans & urbanity.

Geographic abstraction in New York
Mainly inspired by New York, I developed the concept of "geographic abstraction".
I am interested in the randomness of unconscious through imaginary maps as my work is based on emotional recognition through urban or natural environments.
My artistic process delves into the complex undercurrents of intimate & collective interactions.
Based on feelings or memories, I keep exploring forms & lines in my map compositions: I form disaggregated grids
and imaginary maps revealing social tensions and relationships, instead of addresses & landmarks.
It's my visual study of the anatomy of a city.

Visual rupture without Photoshop retouching
City distortions & collective interactions
I felt the necessity to use new mediums to expand my art process.
It allowed me to develop & to refine my pictorial style, mainly inspired by my experience in NYC.
A personal & artistic reconstruction appeared after a year of complete perdition & despair.
It has been the end of the "dérive" started in 2015 and the beginning of my abstract artist gallery on Instagram.
