Born 1981 in France, I pursue a creative path that has led me from experimental music through the martial arts of Japan to the painter’s canvas. I first studied digital arts and musical composition at Paris University, and took part in several avant-garde musical projects during those years.
In 2006 I decided to move to Japan and immerse myself in martial arts. I studied several modern Budo and classical fighting styles, and achieved proficiency in the production and repair of Japanese armors. I wrote several articles and books on the topic of martial arts and released two music albums with Japanese shakuhachi player, Sabu Orimo: Sphères and Kamakura Juniso. For several years I also studied ikebana (Japanese flower arrangement), and monsho gaku, the Japanese heraldic tradition.
Since 2010, I have created a diverse body of work, including musical, digital and pictorial projects. Geometric abstractions and Eastern aesthetics, which I am best known for, hold an important place in my portfolio.
