ARTIST / DIRECTOR

Born in 1987.

After having worked as a graphic designer at Prologue Films in Los Angeles, he has been working for 8 years in the videomapping community. In parallel with this activity, he continues his artistic work by developing visual works that question the instability
of contempory spaces and bodies.
He finds his sources of inspiration in science fiction, japanese animation, video game and posthuman theories ...

His work was presented at Siggraph Asia in Bangkok, the Constellations festival in Metz, the 10th International Biennal of Digital Art from Enghien-les-Bains, the Athens Digital Art Festival, on the facade of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb, as well as the
SESI gallery of Sao paulo for the File Festival... 

He recently worked as Art director and Creative director on the last virtual concerts of french musicien Jean-Michel Jarre: Alone Together and Welcome to the other side.
