Based in: Grenoble
In every stroke of my oil paintings, there is a hidden dialogue between the innocent playfulness of a child's fantasy and the encrypted complexity of the modern world. My art explores the abstractions of the information age, where reality is distorted by technology, mixing myths and scientific discoveries into a mosaic of absurdity. I create not just images, but entire worlds where each fragment has a symbolic meaning. In these worlds filled with bright colors and dynamic shapes, the plots are devoid of a specific appearance, they can hide in bizarre monsters or transitions of paint. My work is an attempt to find answers to how in the digital age we perceive an increasingly abstract world and how virtual battles shape our reality. Through the fragmentation of reality and its abstract reconstruction, I strive to reveal the hidden layers of being, plunging into the depths of consciousness and presenting a complex picture of modernity.
