He draws on the roots of the history of the art to exploit the genre preferred by Velasquez or el Greco. But these references are a pretext only. Because emancipation is now at a maximum and tends to reach the universe of the cartoon or the comic book than the genre painting. Its lads with faces, defeats, struggle to gather what he has given to the body. Even the portrait of Louis XIV, painted by Hyacinthe Rigaud. The artist adds, “a prosthesis of the cubist imagination” which is more like this dear Louis, a vegetable used as a monarch to the sun. A lot of humor in these strange portraits endearing by their ugliness and their incongruity.
