Through paintings & film, my work explores the subject of youth criminality. The work is based on personal experience, mixed with research in the field of psychology. The paintings play on the contrasts between the world of a child and that of criminality.

The short film is an adaptation of French novel Le Petit Prince that takes the character out of being a petit prince and places him in a world of crime.
