An artist must have a strong aura, to enter a state of mind. To understand my creation, you first have to understand my thoughts, my way of thinking. Each piece I have created -and they’re all different- must allow you to enter into a state of mind, and must also be capable of welcoming you in my state of mind the minute I started creating that piece. Art for me is still The best world in which to live it’s a world that opens knowledge up to you and allows you to make extra ordinary creation. What counts is the first impression. It’s my approach in my art. I’ve learned to stay alert and to trust my instincts while painting. The first encounter with a piece of art is followed by a period of getting to know it more profoundly. there are always two aspects: the impression the work makes on you and the explanations that are given. with no information about a piece, or with no knowledge of art, you can still try to appreciate the work but is it possible to frequent art as a “tourist,” something which tends to offend the purists? I don’t have an answer to that...
