During my travels around the world I discovered that living on our planet means to respect it and understand that every human being is connected regardless of their origin.

Through my painting I try to show this plurality which makes our richness and the beauty of each of our cultures. Street-art being an inclusive art, allowing to share a work with the passer-by, it is the medium that I have chosen to express myself and share these values of sharing and unity.

What impacts me the most during my travels are the encounters, a face and a look say more than a thousand words, and my portraits freeze this moment of communion to transmit it to the viewer and make him react.
