His interest in painting started when he was a boy experimenting with ink from different pen colors, mixed and applied them on torn cardboards, which were sometimes hung on the walls of his mother’s sitting room. His mother invited Spee, a very famous artist to show him what the child was doing with the materials he could find in his milieu, thereafter the artist took him to his workshop, under his guidance so to better improve on his skills.
Since then, he has had a professional revolution with much inspiration drawn from his fine arts mentor.

His works express surrealism because he believes that his dreams are inspirational to his life and works.
