Welcome

Welcome to my Inner World. I am a French self-taught artist, and these past seventeen years I have made Norway my home.

The title is borrowed from Arthur Rimbaud but the painting’s loosely inspired by Pirates of the Caribbean (amongst many other sources).

Because you have to admit… they’re a bit foolish. But foolish in the Jungian sense of the term. The Fool is the one archetype that fascinates me the most. He restores lost spontaneity, and is the absolute best guide when one’s in the process of losing one’s soul.

Meanwhile the girls are daydreaming. There’s a time for action and another for contemplation.

Here is another steampunk device which comes without a manual. This one’s inspired by Alex CF’s awesome works.

This was a bit tricky composition-wise but I really enjoyed doing this. All these details took a huge amount of time. I really like compositions where the eye can travel here and there, leisurely. Everything is provided, a cruise boat, a resting place in the gazebo, birds songs and enough mystery to keep you enchanted.
