Where was your first exhibition held?

In a French Theatre in Paris.

 

What are you working on at the moment?

At the moment, I’m working on different series.

I go on with the series Palimpsest which is about the various layer of painting in the street. I began a new work on the Maltese limestone that lets appear abstract short-lived drawings. And another one is about White Rocks in Pembroke.

20 years …

 

Are you a morning person or do you come alive at night?

I prefer to work early in the morning.

Sundays can be very productive for some and very unproductive for others. How do you spend yours?

Very unproductive: Sundays are for resting.

Both of course, I’m French

 

If you were given a million euros, what would you indulge yourself with?

I think I would like to open a gallery or an art foundation.

 

Favourite place to holiday?

Used to be Malta, but as I’m lucky enough I could make it my home.
