Hi Oliver!

Yes i recetly moved from Montreal to Johannesburg. The situation is much better today, but I would say now the apartheid is less a racial one than an economic one (most poor people are black). Though you can still feel the effects of the apartheid regime, racism is definitely not our of the picture. Difficult to give a portrait of the situation in few words but this website is a good source of information on social isues in the country: http://ccs.ukzn.ac.za/

Description

Illustration became the place of my fantasies and allows me a deep commitment to experiment and reflection. Crossing of the communications, the intelligence and the human sensibility, my works is inspired as much by the ˝dreamy˝ childhood universe, by the comic strip, as by cinema. I take pleasure to profoundly sink into a moment, a state or a concept.


I have joined the Memfest community becasue i am interested in

the idea of reaching out people with greater concern about what the world is going through. I think that art and good communication can make people better, by asking questions and creating interactions between humans.
