I am a multicultural nomad and multidisciplinary artist planting dreams and cooking cloud flambés. I use drawing, sculpture, photography and film to create a poetic, colorful and lighthearted language with a strong multicultural and spiritual content.
Brought by the stork from Mauritania’s desert, I was born in France, then raised in Guatemala and in San Francisco where I enjoyed alternating my activities between acting, writing, eating burritos and heavily sweating in track & field competitions.
Once in France, I obtained a diploma in language studies and started working at the luxury maison Chanel in Paris, with coordination in innovation projects and then in coordination of a commercial network. I knew since little that I wanted to be an artist, but I was only able to fulfill my dream after 5 years in black and white, thanks to a guardian angel who enabled me to go back to university to pursue my colorful passion for arts. In 2010, I graduated from ESAG-Penninghen in a Master’s Degree in Art Direction with high honors.
That same year, I moved to Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, where I created my art studio, providing services as a creative and art director as well as a multidisciplinary artist, mainly for cultural fields, but also for advertising and sports. I love to contribute to projects in the fullest way possible, going from their conception to their full execution.
I have worked with audiovisual and multidisciplinary projects for fashion, music, theater, cinema and television programs. With an intimist and cinematographic language, I directed sensorial short documentaries for music artists Paralamas do Successo and Silvia Machete as well as for a social project led by Fanta in the favela Rocinha. I created and directed a couple of multidisciplinary campaigns for the kid fashion brand Fabula mixing film, original music, photography and drawing. I also produced photographs and drawings for musicians, magazines (Trip), advertising (Publicis, JWT), private firms (Corinthians, Tim) as well as for institutions such as the recently inaugurated Museum of Tomorrow. I worked with scenography for video projections in theater for the award-winning actor and director Enrique Diaz, and recently for the Olympic Games held in Rio de Janeiro for which I was the Visual Creator of the projections for the Closing Ceremony.
In 2017, I opened my wings again to spend the year studying sculpture in Los Angeles and in Costa Rica to redirect my practice to fine arts.
