His book "L'Esprit du Geste" (Spirit of the brushstroke) was published by the "Editions du Chêne" constitutes a clear and concise basis for learning tch'an and sumie painting. It offers great personal creativity, more interior and spiritual approach related to the traditions of China and Japan. This teaching allows a just adaptation of our Western perception of Art.
In July 2006 in Savoie and in june 2011 in south of France, he organized the First and second International meeting of painting and calligraphy by inviting painters from China, Japan, Taïwan, Mongolie, Corea and Europe.
In may 2013, he has been the first western painter to be exhibited at the famous Rong Bao Zhai gallery.
