Portrait ‘Ink and Water’ (speed painting) offers a glance at my artistic vision—it is my first artwork featured on Youtube. I’m playing with ink by dropping it on some wet surfaces of the paper (size A4) in order to create a lasting visual impression.

I’m a French contemporary artist (drawer, painter and illustrator) and I’m glad to offer a glance at my artistic vision. This particular artwork is probably in the vein of contemporary pop art and pop artists. I’m often asked whether I use watercolor but with this type of paintings, ink is by far the best material.
