Bio

- I have been making abstract painting on canvases for a few years.

- I make in situ installations, with a certain obsession for color, collected objects, indexes.

- I sometimes paint on walls, on paper, in public, during performances or for album covers.

- I write short texts in several notebooks, notes on my phone, texts a bit longer on my computer, sometimes directly on the Internet.

- Since summer 2017, I draw mindmaps, dated and numbered from 1 to 100, in different cities.

- In 2015, I co-founded EICA Records.

- For a year, I have been contributing to a revue named KILOMETRES, with a few other artists.

- I type texts, inventories, even some errors sometimes, directly on canvases, painted before or after.

- I take some photographs and make videos of places I live in or work at.

- I have been writing a – not so interesting – book for a year.
