Who are you ?
I am a green young man who likes blue skies, with or without clouds. Softness moves me : softness is my motto. I think that words are images, and that images are words. I would have loved to have a sense of rythm, and also to be a great illustrator. When I was 18, I wanted to be an actor. At 19, I understood that I couldn't recite other people's words. At 20, I wrote my first novel What does this pre-Christmas period mean to you ?
It reminds us how useful a duvet is. I like to compare pleasures. What's better? To be warm under the sun with one's feet in the sand facing the ocean, or in bed during a cold winter, with some spicy tea and a friend to kiss? As far as presents are concerned, I'm one of those who prefer giving them. If you want to please me, ask me to please you. What would be your ultimate artistic dream for the year 2018 ?
Let artists create in peace, without trying to control their unconscious or intentions. But I know that's an illusion. So from a personal viewpoint, my artistic dream remains the same : to be sad enough to have things to tell. ; and happy enough to feel the desire to create.
