From my youth I was fascinated by the  Zamal,a male chameleon with his red mane which

had a great influence in the undergrowth of my garden… As much the beautiful Asleep

phosphorescent (lizard) is calm as much the Zamal is fiery… Kids we sometimes took it

with a lace to see his fighting spirit…

Then older I heard the word Zamal with another meaning the word Zamal is also used

in the island( la Reunion Island) to name the drug cannabis. Why? Maybe the

aggressiveness of the smokers of "zamal"

 In my painting I mixed the two the chameleon is present and the loss of control of the

smoker is associated ... Why the Black ... It is instinctive ... can be the indefinable mystery

of the aggressiveness that we find in the forms that I have nevertheless humanized?

    The ART is a Conversation,

I do a sort of recycling of the history of ART

A permanent dialogue with Art and the artists that I selected in my imaginary museum and its repeated and re-catalogued supported actions become my Brand and my expression mark combining references of artists with my own ideas findings, innovations in a certain innovative artist Entropy of this century of communication, transgression, questioning as a step forward in a present future
