Born in Paris in 1949, has painted and sculpted for over 35 years. His grand canvases shaped by a consciously classical slant and executed with traditional oil techniques, are witty, satirical and replete with carefully observed details.
One side of him tends towards caricature and the grotesque, the other towards elegance and refinement.
