Long time ago, when I use to live with my parents, there was an image somewhere home, that I loved to cross sight with. I used to see a monkey, but it slowly became a Lion. As my inspiration was blured by the will of my hand.
LE LEONOGONE. Wax on canvas. 85x155cm. 2014.
I don’t know exactly where it come from, but I think it is from Benin, in Africa. It might be a chimp or a baboon. But I like to see a Lion or a jaguar.
