About the Artist
Passionate about electronics and horology, Frédéric invents and develops a new aesthetic concept in contemporary art, combining Art and Sciences, vintage and modernity, technologies of today and yesterday. His artworks reinterpret the passing time. Second after second, progressive and random illuminations of orange light, animated digits and sparkling effects, create several visual rhythms marking the unique signature of his collections.
