Translation in English: CHRISTOPHER de CHAZAL


I was born in 1982 and grew up in a close knit family on a sugar estate where I learnt to share, to love one another and life’s values. My whole world revolved round my parents whom I adored. Eight years after my birth I suffered my first real sadness: without warning, my father left my mother and I for a better world elsewhere.

Art has been my greatest passion since infancy. Drawing is sacred as it allows me to find myself; it is the expression of my being. Drawing animals in particular has always fascinated me. From animal to animal I have been unconsciously drawn from that which I have always been passionate about to that which inexplicably holds my attraction: the sea. Gradually I have allowed her waves and her depths to take me away.
