The Missing Link Project

This strange monster is part of the PICTOPLASMA'S MISSING LINK PROJECT , an installation of 500 selected monsters that will take place at the gallery La Gaîté Lyrique during the Pictoplasma Festival in Paris

Pictoplasma is a Berlin based festival about contemporary international character design and figurative art. For the first time the festival take place in Paris from December 7 to 31.

I think it will be hard to find my monster among other 500 characters, but it's worth going to see the festival.
Here you will find the program and all information

And if you find my monster... please let me know ;)

Pictures from my Garden in Berlin

I'm pleased to show the pictures of my exhibition at La Placette gallery of Berlin:

Welcome to the Garden

“I tried to get him some of those apples, but I cannot learn to throw straight. I failed, but I think the good intention pleased him. They are forbidden, and he says I shall come to harm; but so I come to harm through pleasing him, why shall I care for that harm?”
Mark Twain “Eve’s diary” – 1906

Thanks to Álvaro Sendra González and Alban Lavy for the photos
