Memory, image and word… During his D.E.A *, he worked as a graphic designer and a web/multimedia developer by creating his own firm. His goal was to use all the rising potential of a new communication technology, the Internet, in order to structure and web cast a specific or more general knowledge (but the Web dynamic was just about to really begin). At this point, much more than written word and multimedia, image entered his process too as obvious and mighty broadcasting vectors of powerful structured information. He then became an international Lead designer and opened his Art gallery and graphic / development studio in Montreal’s famous Belgo building, which gave him the opportunity to evolve his practice in drawing, painting and photography. He also continually deepens his spiritual study of Dharma, following Longchempa’s universal teachings. The cornerstone of his artistic approach is his reliance on imagery sourced exclusively from his memory and imagination (except regarding the photograph field).
