His source of inspiration: Edward Hopper
By devoting himself exclusively to painting, he has the opportunity to put his many years of experience to good use thanks to the freedom he has found painting each canvas! Inspired by the work of Edward Hopper, he developed a style centred around light. He focuses mainly on female subjects to be able to paint the reflection of light on bodies and fabrics in a colourful ambience.
