« I create by taking inspiration from the cultural texture and geography in which I live. The diversities and the contrasts of this geography are the colours of my universe and works.

« Which materials do you often use ? Why ? How do you choose raw materials ?
Everywhere have the potential to be a material library and as if we live in a megastore of the materials.

« What are your projects ?
I want to combine my art projects with jewelry and nowadays I am working on 2 series: Mein lieber Diktator and 1 Euro Shop. I am questioning authority, obedience, implicit violence and pressure for Mein lieber Diktator Series. And I am questioning precious and non-precious concepts for 1 Euro shop Series. » (Studio Zigzag interview on « lenvers-du-decor » – juill. 2016)
