Eight months ago, I was presenting my second soloshow “ESSENCE” at DavidBloch Gallery, in Marrakech.
Morrocco is a very inspiring place, it plays a key role in the evolution of my Art and Self. As before, I stayed around 40 days in the old imperial city, living and working in the medina, inside the walls of the Kasbah. There, Time dissolve into some other perspective. More flexible. That enable me to create many new canvas one after the other, A sort of tribute to the genesis, a documentation of the evolution of the mind, body and soul during the process of Creation. From the intention to the chosen realm.
Last year, somewhen blured in Time, I had the amazing opportunity to discover a continent I never been to before.
Australia, and the desert of Pilbara. A place that holds the memory of human consciousness. A place were linesongs are being sang for 40000 years. A land were invisible is tangible. Somwehere you can hear the memory of Vibration.

I tried to throw some lines and words on a paper about where I live…but when the virgin canvas was hanged in front of me, I could only see body lines, sensual, organic, in movement. I couldn’t work on the cold structure of a city,
While I was in Newyork, I’ve been proposed to realize an indoor mural for a great Mexican restaurant in Soho. I was just coming back from Cholula, a town in Mexico litterally built on a pyramid, on which was then built a Church, over which I seen a large rainbow while I was painting a Jaguar. I was there, on the otherside of the fence, at the frontier of the ancient Temple.
So hopefully, in Newyork, I’ve been able to create a colored version of the jaguar previously borned in Mexico.
Let’s talk about Cholula’s magnetic attraction first…
