Touched by painting and in a continuous practice since childhood, it was self-taught that he developed it until the meeting at the School of Architecture (1974) painters A. Blank, R. Bruycker and sculptor A. Courtois.
At that moment painting took an essential and fundamental dimension in his life.
As early as 1979, architecture became a “territory” where research, production and teaching were the main priorities of his creative and design work, marked by a continuing concern for the relationships between man, space, light, shape and color.
The resumption of his activities as a painter since three years (Académie des Beaux-Arts in Liège), finally puts him back in a relationship “assiduous” with the creation. Latency, saturation, accumulation, (post) destruction, the “smooth”, the indifference, the silence of the “banal violence”, the “industrialization” of collective suffering, and their global implications, are building his pictorial work.
