Artist graduated from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels
He used paper and cardboard for a long period of his artistic life.
In this period his monumental sculptures are mostly iconoclastic and give a sense of the futility of things.
He cultivates a certain decline bordering on cynicism about things and events. Spiderman, Michael Jackson, the banker, political figures, everything goes.
Superheroes fascinated him to better make them accessible and understandable.
To put them off their pedestal seems to be his favourite artistic way. Their fatal falls or not, challenge our myths and contemporary certainties and thus makes us think about our dream of immortality by breaking our need identification or the reverse.
In his later comments he talks about positive deconcertation is beautifully told to surprise the admirers of his works.
Today he returned to painting in a rather original way combining aesthetics and graphic beauty.
