Where does your passion for art come from?
I think it’s more a passion for beauty in general (I don’t mean only physical beauty with this word), I mean, not only the artistic beauty either, but also the beauty you can find in nature or language. Where does it come from? I don’t know, it comes naturally! I think the weirdest is to not have it or to live in the ugliness and to create it (which seems normal for most of people)…
Ask yourself a question and answer to it!
Why would you not move to Norway? Because it’s cold and there is no tomatoes.
Which product would you like to draw for Camaloon?
I’d like to complete the deck of cards collection and produce a lot of them!
Or a ceramic game with a different design for each objects… or maybe a children’s game…
How do you get inspiration?
I find my inspiration in art, medieval history, nature, animals and the perfection of each species, bright colours, etymology and words (I often start with a pun and then I mix to words or I picture them in one image).
Who is your favourite artist – famous or not?
I don’t have one. How could I choose only one? Here’s some of the greatest artists of the past that I love: Grosz, Ensor, Picasso e Malevich.
How do you create? (place, motivation, hangup…)
I usually start with micro doodles made with a pencil and a paper (for drawings or digital illustrations). Then, I try all kinds of colours on the computer, even though I usually finish by using the same colours over and over: The red never fail, blue, lemon yellow, navy blue, black…
What is Camaloon for you?
Right now, I think Camaloon is an opportunity to use my images and pictures in a way that I’ve never thought about before. I have to admit that is really entertaining.
I was always fascinated by the creation of a unique item as much as the modern technics leading to an identical production. This last one allows a more affordable piece of art for everyone.
