The mouth painter was born in Strasbourg on September 6, 1966. Ever since the age of 2, he has suffered from the after-effects of a meningo-encephalitis of viral origin with 80% paralysis of his arms. He had lessons while in a nursing home and attended an accounting course for 1 year. Painting is his favourite pastime, but music as well plays an important role in his life. He even plays the organ holding a rod in his mouth. Other hobbies of this enterprising young artist are skiing, swimming, football and cinema.
