About

The artist, 

 

 

 

Australian since 1985, I was born in Normandy in 1956.

Visual artist for more than forty years, I worked as book illustrator (Courte-Queue/ Cliptail by Gabrielle Roy - Roch Carrier), set designer, book designer, Art Director and Creative Director in my twenties so that I could fulfill the pursuit of painting.

I established Mural in Sydney in 1985. Murals are an art form that I aim for; I work on large scale perspectives and that is a challenge. My paintings are I, the painter, and my passion for light & hues in landscapes, outback & urban, day or nightlight. Spatial visual painter, I assimilate old and new techniques. I work with classical tools: drawing, watercolors on paper and painting on canvas with acrylics, yet I also embrace 3D computer design to expand my skills in creating with multimedia. Murals demand perspectives fitting the context to be successful.

Perspectives go beyond the physical reality of a wall transporting one's eyes into space. MURAL has created and produced murals for corporate, commercial, social and private use, for interior and outside walls, including building façade and courtyard. I collaborate on concepts with architects, designers or sometimes other muralists. I organize and work with teams and painters for each project requiring specific skills.
