- The Creative Front :
I find myself being productive again. For now, 2017 has being extremely hard on the private side and i can only be grateful the Arts always remain a source of … The Source. (especially after a pretty calm 2016). Whatever happens now, i’ve decided to work as hard as i could until my body/mind can’t take it anymore.
I started to try other things, like sculpting limestone, but also to work with clay and trying some watercolors. I am also using wood / barks to create some new entities. In one word, i’ve opened myself to a creative wave (also with my music), so it can take me away from this reality to a renewed one, until i reach the eternal freedom*
You can check the other and most recent works, as usual, on my Facebook page
Don’t hesitate to share / show me your own works in this Group
Contact me if you interested to exhibit me or to collaborate
- Some recent artworks :
These artworks are all available in limited fine art prints, check the store.
- Pandorama :
I’ve made me start a bigger canvas (100/100cm) .. I want to finish it so i can show it next fall to show it in an important art show.
It is a very colorful painting (as you can see here), asking a lot of work on details and meanings but it has literally saved me for the last couple of weeks, spending on it long night sessions. I will always remember what it meant for me & hopefully the public will like it.
- Exhibitions / Projects :
It is always complicated for me to share my artworks in the classical art world since i refuse to sell my original works, but at least there are some opportunities with collective places, where you can just share.
That being said, i am trying to get featured in some bigger venues / events and i’ve just been selected for a great one next november …
This specific event will take place in a former psychiatric hospital, dedicated to the outsider arts scene and i hope it opens me some doors to pursue my goal and share even more in the reaLife … finally (before i die).
This is the reason i finally had to accept to create a sort of “press-kit” thanks to the help of my relatives & the great Marie-Anaïs Caille, without her help & guidelines, it would have been impossible and i am grateful she offered me her support.
So i have a tool (only in french for now) to contact serious venues and art’ activists, this is really a new important step.
It is a relief, since it was a lot of work to write long emails each time i wanted to get in touch with them and obviously no one answered my (way too long) messages since they were not enough concise and too much metaphorical.
- Sculptures :
I am totally a self-taught person, this is why i spend my time making mistakes, some call them “happy accidents”, i just name it experiences / the Journey. I don’t pretend to be a sculptor but i recently felt a renewed need to expand my imagination into these lands, such as clay, limestone, wood etc … here are a couple raw works in progess, click the images *
- HeArt support :
Remember money is not my main focus …
Still, it represents a tool i can use to be able to create even more.
Consider buying me a limited fine art prints ….
And be sure it will help me a lot -> STORE
- Publication / Interview :
I was very happy to have a new chance to talk about what i do and why i do it.
The great Amy Fulton did a beautiful job, interviewing me for her blog and putting out a great article.
I hope you will be curious to check it out -> Interview
- A new p-age :
I have created a facebook page -> ” M.U.K ”
So i can post some naive, fast done drawings.
Some i do with another person too …
Or things i will draw in the streets etc …
Click & Check It Out *
You can also show me your artworks in this GROUP
- Instagram / Stories :
I really invite you to follow me on my instagram account -> HERE
As you know we can post 24H life long stories & i use it pretty often to show works in progress.
Things i generally don’t post on other networks as well as behind the scenes pictures, videos.
- French :
En résumé, ce premier semestre a été difficile au niveau personnel, mais le plus important c’est d’avoir retrouvé une certaine urgence à créer et s’exprimer, et ce, sous diverses formes et supports. J’espère pouvoir participer à plus de salons avec la fin de l’année, pour partager tout ce qu’il sera possible de l’être.
• Pour les curieux ou professionnels, j’ai maintenant un Dossier de diffusion
• Et en début d’année, un entretien très complet en français, sur mon travail -> ICI
• Vous pourrez voir mon travail en novembre 2017 lors du 16e Salon Art et Déchirure
