traditional

I have always studied and practiced most of the traditional techniques of drawing, prints and painting. I think, like Giacometti, that drawing is the foundation of everything and like Hokusai that only decades of intensive practice can give it the breath of life. Pencil, quill pens, gouache, watercolor, oil… it is all about a genuine spiritual path and from this practice and only from it new conceptions and visions emerge.
