He moved to Paris to complete his Bachelor of Arts at the University of Paris and specialized in art conservation and restoration at the Art et Avenir School in Paris. He had the honor and talent to assist the main art restorers of the Louvre Museum; Dechelette, Rostin and Marechal. Much of his time has been spent educating and sharing his knowledge with other people, through guided tours in Paris’ top museums or lectures and courses about restoration, drawing and pigments at leading art universities worldwide.

However, his deep passion wasn’t in restoring the great arts of history but creating a history of his own through the expression of his paintings. With the use of his well depicted color pigments and oil paint, which he collects and searches during his travels abroad, he creates his palette like an alchemist in past times. His talent is furthermore his rich visual effect, as if one is drawn into a diverse landscape, traveling vertigo between sky and earth. The feel of being magnetically pulled into his scenery is even physically reinforced due to his circular canvas that one can turn around 360°, creating a master piece at every angle.
