“A matter of transition, a date.
It's not about simply changing technique, abandoning the brushes.
Goes beyond.
This is release of styles, techniques, Stigmata…
Not to worry in a quest for perfect risk, for details.
This is to allow my instinct guide me, flowing and transcending my limits, and thus creating, free of any external influences. A real creative expansion by perception.
It is a pure connection, a direct connection to my art.
It's about my deeper I.
And today I can express it in my works.
This is my essence”
