Wish you the best for 2022 !


Dear visitor, let me wish you the best for the coming year, plenty of dreams and inspiring encounters !

In 2022 I'll keep travelling, between Alexandria (EG), Paris and the shore of the Mediterranean, for several exhibitions including Cocteau's "Maalesh" and a new and very exciting project about travels, childhood, planets and a fox.. Maybe you'll guess ?

May your year be inspiring and see you soon around the Mediterranean !
