His universe is made up of scenes drawing on the history of the Holy Grail. His paintings merge his fascination with the history and art of the Middle Ages with a taste for Symbolist and modernist formalism, thus creating his own mythology inspired both by his readings and the many journeys he undertakes.

The atmosphere evoked by the paintings recalls that of the icons of the Russian Orthodox and popular tradition, which are characterized by a transfiguration of the characters through the elimination of shadows. The clean and calligraphic line inscribes the protagonists of the Arthurian cycles, in a two-dimensional space that transports us to a magical and ideal world. With elegance, he traces slender silhouettes, frozen in a present and eternal moment, whose nobility is accentuated by the rich material of the brocade fabrics with floral motifs.
