During November, I’ve been lucky enough to be flying to Martinique island, in Caraïbes, in order to take part in the first biennale of Contemporary Art there. The mission was to create a mural of more or less 10 by 8 meters.
CYCLOPE, FEMME GRENOUILLE, & ASTRONAUTE. Spray on wall. Martinique Island. 2013
As i choose to arrive virgin of prejudice or stereotype where I go, The first thing I did there, such as in most of the place I visit, was to learn about the most ancient Art of the region. So I go in the street talk to people, learn about the legends, and visit the Archeology or/and Anthropology museum rather than any other. It’s where I find what i need to find. It s where wisdom and knowledge, when not hidden, is exposed. And there…I’ve been very inspired, feeling I was touching some of our lost memory.
