illustration of When you take a look at what quantum physics tells us about reality and matter, both waveform and particle, seemingly following an amplituhedron, sometimes, it seems that matter whispers
illustration of Aphantasia is a mental illness describing people who don't have a mind's eye, ie they cannot visualise anything in their mind. Åphantasia would be worse, going to an incapacity for imagination. This woman is harvesting mushrooms, and trying some psychedelics, but to no avail as it doesn't have any effect on her, and her mind stays sharp, sober, unable to break the rational cage.
A surreal, colorful, sci-fi, low brow, and dreamy tale  through this portrait set in a cyberpunk future.
illustration of Le Gatoblaster, the skateboarding ghettoblaster cat, a character and illustration I made for the XXth anniversary of urban culture festival Les Vibrations Urbaines de Pessac, celebrating skate, BMX, hip hop dance battles, urban art, video games, music and much more since 1998.
illustration of A children picture book I made for my little niece, telling the adventures of Puche through each seasons thanks to her Magic Hood and Quantum Boots, discovering the landscapes, weather and changes in nature for each one in a single day. Then, she proceeds on to the 5th season, the Season of Dreams.
illustration of Some Instagram fun with a few feelings running by, like digital overdose and the need to disconnect, doubts about someone else's environmental consciousness, or nihilistic emptiness, shaped - with gnarly lettering and funky characters such as sloths, turtles and your average baldie -  as  big emojis or stickers for apps.
illustration of Personal and perhaps feminist take on a Three Graces triptych, inspired by the body positive / body acceptance / body diversity movement. Aglaé (left) evokes beauty in a shy yet narcissic way, Euphrosine (middle) is joy against all odds (impending death included), and Thalie (right) is the personification of abundance.
illustration of Psycake, an infinite layer of cheeky, playful, surreal, kinky, may be disturbing but always colorful psychedelic plasma of monsters.
illustration of Wanderlust in the colorful, geometric / polygonal mountains, during sunrise.

Profile

Combining traditional and digital magic to create surrealist and psychedelic hybrids of intimate (dreams, emotions, personal life) and collective mythologies (quantum physics and the rest of science, politics, philosophy, metaphysics), I leave indeterminacy areas for the viewer's own mythology to resonate freely with it. I have extensively explored creativity, through drawing, painting, sculpture, music, graphic design, animated GIFs, photo, storytelling, sculpting and research (my Master's thesis was on japanese artist Murakami Takashi and Japanese society and philosophy), all enhancing the ground of my art. Now, I specialise in illustration and art, and do my best to breach through the viewer's rational mind, and widen that gate to the things on which words slip, but that feelings can describe. And, well, all that fun that comes with doing these things. Feel free to contact me, I'm always delighted to discuss collaborations or answer your questions.
