Instit’, like my mother.
Which artists inspire you?
I grew up with Enki Bilal comics. I love his world, his pencil stroke and his color palette. I will also mention Egon Schiele, Françoise Petrovich, Inès Longevial and Bjork.
How did you come up with this technique with inks and acrylic?
In The School of Art in Blois. The click, I got it when we were drawing out quick sketches of people’s environment, evoked and instantaneous. The ink and watercolor were ideal for me.
