D*Face│La Monographie / The Monograph
“By the time you pick up this book, it will have been at least six years since my last monograph appeared. It may seem like a short time, but don't forget that what you see in these pages is my life. I'm not just talking about the long work sessions in the studio, nor the twelve-hour days that my team and I devote to our frescoes. There is also every moment of the day, and sometimes of the night, that I spend reflecting, creating, deconstructing and criticizing what I paint. It's not just a job. It's my whole life.
Originally, I wanted this book to be dedicated to my walls. I've painted a number of them now, between 70 and 80. Then I thought about all the exhibitions and all the projects I've been involved in, and I said to myself that it was a shame not to include them. a few more nuggets. Those who don't know my work will find some older works there. Those who have been following me for a long time will discover my new creations there and will be able, metaphorically, to take a look behind the scenes. »
