Tell us what defines you as a person.
I'm a 28 y/o graphic artist based in Brussels, Belgium. I consider myself as a multidisciplinary artist as I always take different artistic directions (photography, drawing, painting, sculpture, music, animation...). How did you found out about deviantART and why did you join the community?
Well I became a member some 5 years ago, just after I discovered the photos of Gilad Benari, a senior deviantART member. I was already a Flickr user and I quickly became addicted to deviantART as well. When and how did you discover your passion for art?
I was initially passionate about drawing. I started drawing on a daily basis at around 11 y/o. Then I discovered painting and sculpture. It's only during my degree in Journalism that I started taking photos. And I'm now more and more interested by music. What inspires you the most and when do you think your creativity is at its maximum?
My creativity and motivation are always at their maximum, it's just the events of life that prevent me from spending 100% of my time on my projects (family life, administrative work...), I guess everybody has to deal with this... I'm mainly inspired by nature and people. What do you think you'd be doing if you hadn't chosen this path?
Music for sure. And I'm still young enough to take a new path if needed, which is cool. What do you think it's your most meaningful deviation and what makes it special? Does it have a story behind it?
It's Pencil Vs Camera - 57
with the model Caroline Madison. There is a personal story behind each of my deviation, but that one in particular is even more special. It was almost an improvised shooting (in London), the drawing on the paper is related to Caroline's life. The drawing is meaningful and meaningless at the same time which I think gives it a timeless and universal touch. Do you have any insecurities regarding your art?
It's a bit scary to realize that once a photo or a drawing is published, you completely lose control of it. It's just the way it works with the Internet. Did art ever helped you to deal with your life problems?
Yes, I'm a bit anxious and I have too much energy, working on my artistic projects helps me to canalize this energy and to reduce my personal fears. What is the one thing you always wanted to do but never got a chance to?
Music. A few words for our fellow artists?
Art is something precious. It feeds everybody's soul. Keep going, keep creating, soon or later, it will be your time. [link]
