Describe your studio... It is not like a classic studio. My working method, with lacquers, requires specific installations, like a kind of disorganized lab. I don't have a lot of art equipments, only my lacquers, my wood panels, my spatulas and my gold leafs. I works on the ground, and the floor is covered with a lot of lacquers' layers. Ironically, I don't like to be in my studio. I built a border between me and my artworks, and when I finished painting I don't stay.
