Born and raised in rural France and moved to Tokyo in 2004. After spending 19 years in more or less interesting companies, I decided to quit my job to become a freelance illustrator in August 2018. My first orders were for a french restaurant in Tokyo (Tiles and artworks) , 2 CD covers for an independent Japanese label, and illustrations for corporate marketing material. I am currently working with a Japanese publisher on a picture book illustrating a famous Japanese 80s song.
I sell prints as well as my original works. Don't hesitate to contact me:).
I won a prize from Nippon Designer Gakuin in September 2018 as well as from the Nippon Foundation in October 2018 for posters I designed. In september 2019, one of my work was selected for the JAGDA International Student Poster Award. It will be exhibited at Tokyo National Art Center (Roppongi) from November 26th to December 9th.
My interests : collecting vinyl and DJing (from mandingue to post-punk via hi-life, showa kayou and Bollywood soundtracks), subculture, black humour, antique books that smell like fungi, Tokyo bars and sea urchins.
In terms of 20th century artists I admire the most: Moebius , Caza, Yooko Tadanori, Tanaami Keiichi, Francis Bacon, Fela Kuti, Chiaki Naomi, Oum Kalsoum, Oyang Fei Fei, Mulatu Astatke, Farid El Atrache, John Coltrane and many many more!
