Artist Statement

We live in a connected world, where inspiration comes from our surrounding, whether it is emotions, the physical environment, people. It is a constant feed, and I try to grasp it and be a translator.
My work is a combination of illustrations and hand-crafted animations, the pursuing of new languages through technology and immersive designs to create environments for the audience to explore. But… I departed from painting, which I have rekindled with and worked on over the past four years. Growing up in France, I was taught the insatiable desire to break from past conventions, inspired by the Impressionists and the Nouveau Realists, and I have been exploring my heritage as a Kabyle person in a very careful manner, in my most recent work.
A lot of my work revolves around emotions, particularly the relationship between longing, caring and its physical demonstration. I am also fascinated by patterns of nature and its dialogue with our humanity.
