Indian ink – 25 x 17 cm
Made in between Paris & Las Vegas – Oct 2014
I am traveling a lot these days. Therefore I have the opportunity to sketch quite often … I like to sketch surrounded by people. The good vibes push you to express something, to draw what you feel and to feel what you live.
Marcel Duchamp when I was in West Hollywood and Georg Baselitz in Paris inspired me to draw these two « croquis ». The last one was made in a Thalys (high speed train) on my way back from Belgium to Paris. Magritte works that I saw for the 3rd time in Brussels and the news I read on the newspaper were behind this third croquis.
All this will be painted one day in my parisian studio. I will let you know !
These two unfinished watercolor & ink « Night Market & Street Food » and « Histoire & Indépendance » have been exhebited in the cityhall of Paris – 2nd district from May 19 to June 4 , 2014.
« Night Market & Street Food » and « Histoire & Indépendance »
I don’t want and I can not finish these paintings … it would immured a relationship that brought me so much.
Even Arman has no heart to paint. Mondrian smashes sadness … the red cross church, the flowers, SB , the Daan MRT & the Carrot station, the Guonguan Exit N 3 , the NTU breeze, its farm and its park … with all this, Klimt tries his best Lire la suite
You don’t even know sometimes why you come to a place. As a nomad no options are on the table a long time in advance. You go where your feelings push you … the less you think the best it is, beleive me !
Daan Impossible – March 14
As a tea fan, a oolong « connaisseur en devenir » Taiwan is the Bordeaux area for a St Emilion addict ! I came here 3 months ago for the 1st time in my life and I almost styed forever !
Daan Park in Taipei – March 14
When you travel you meet people. When you meet people, you do things with them. You talk, have a tea (I never drink sodas or alcohol), visit places, museums & art shows. Most of french people « boivent un verre » & go to a restaurant.
As a nomad painter sometimes you paint ! That what happens when I met André … he became the painter for 2 hours and I was his assistant 🙂 .
We Collide – Taipei 2014
Great result, isn’t it … I love it ! « We collide » is a watercolor & indian ink on paper. It won’t Lire la suite
Beeing a nomad is not that easy … not easy every day for yourself. But who cares ? You made up your mind for the best and for the worse !
» xxxx Triste » – Watercolor – April 14
I think more specifically of my close family and friends … I bear in mind that it is not easy at all for the people who shared some good times with you for so many years in your previous life. They most probably understand why you do it & they probably knew that would happen one day. But still I am thinking about then very often. « Triste » has been painted for them … inspired by the artist toma-L.

Last February I had to go to London for a few good resaons ! It was my first week 100% off as a nomad painter … great experience !
« 3 teas » symbolizes my wish to travel as an artist in between Europe (round cup), North America (Starbucks paper cup) and Asia (Gong fu cha) … to paint and to study masters.
3 Teas – London 2014
On my way to the Paul Klee Exhibition at the Tate that day I crossed the London bridge and walked along the Tames. When I came back to my studio I have decided to paint my day « à la manière de » Paul Klee. I was so enthusiatic that I did a 3rd version of « Jin » named this time « Jin from London » … a « clin d’oeil » connected with Tom of Finland :-).
