About the Artist:

Sculptor, draughtsman. Was educated by his father, a French stone sculptor. Lived in France and studied in Tourcoing and Paris.

He found his inspiration in the human figure, which is roughly cut out of stone and therefore radiating monumentality and strength, but also with a certain vulnerability; monumental, static and massive shapes in an upright position, that remind you of menhirs. Since the mid 1990ies, he has focused on drawing, mainly dancers.
