Profile

I am a french illustrator based in Italy and 90's enthusiast. My work has a strong voice and i do not hesitate to take sides in complicated topics. Art is my weapon, i use it to convey emotions and important messages. The creative process for me is very emotional. Most of my works are inspired by the music I listen to. The beat, the lyrics, the melody, the emotions I feel from the music I am listening to while I am creating. For me, creating is like being on a roller coaster; ups and downs, twists and turns, in a constant movement. Drawing for me is allowing my emotions to spill out onto a sheet of paper as an incredible release.
