- Info about me and my work:

“I’m a Belgian visual creator (drawing, photography, painting). I was born in the Ivory Coast and currently live and work in Brussels. I have a degree in journalism but never really worked in that field. I briefly studied graphic arts and sculpture but I’m mainly a self-taught artist. My creations are being exhibited in art galleries in Belgium and in the United States.

I’ve recently developed two series that have had a good reception in the art community: “Pencil Vs Camera” and “Digital Circlism”. The first is a combination of drawing and photography, the second a digital way of making images with thousands of flat circles. Graphic creation is a true passion, one of the reasons and meanings of my existence.

Feel free to send any question or suggestion at my personal email address as well:

Here below is a big mix of my “personal choices”.
