Curtain Boy 6
CB April 22d 2010, private collection***
In the series called Man at the window or MAW I always paint a man in the sunlight through a window; I noticed that this posture is very interesting for the contrast of lights and the beauty of the body:

For years I did what I thought I had to do. It just became… “Necessary”. Then “Necessary” became consuming and then consuming became life sucking… Yet, even though my life was being stolen from me I was still afraid to stop. Crazy!?!I was driven by fear’s constant “what ifs”. What if I stop and we don’t have enough money – What if people get angry with me – What if others tell me I’m wrong – What if I can’t do anything else??? The list goes on and on…
From a spiritual perspective – fear is not of God (I am not christian though, my God is more a private abstract God far from any religion) – or rather, I find God often telling me in scripture »> DO NOT BE AFRAID! Does that mean I throw all caution to the wind? No, but it does tell me that my logic and my life choices are better determined by my faith than they are by my fears.
So what did I do? Well, I started with the idiom “life is short” – this disarmed and unveiled the ugly cycle I had been drawn into. Next – I prayed, received confirmation, faced the “what ifs” and ultimately chose life – that is – the things I love including; my God, my family, my friends, my art and many other passions as well.
I am aware that life isn’t always about what we want but, be wary because it can become all about what we are afraid of.
So today I am celebrating abundant provision, true opinions, and above all, the fact that I have my life back!
~ Happy day to you all
ps: this text i made mine with one change (God) and it is originally here … because I felt like I could totally have written it, every word I agree…
Geo : What am i doing? from the begining (2009) I express my view through all the influences of painters, photographs, models and sculptors of any time.
People often tell me that my paintings and my ceramics are interesting and have a kind of beauty in them, well I hope that it’s true for all those who have them at home: I sent more than 500 artworks all around the world already, all of them you can see on my websites
What i am looking for during the time I create something is to take out — outside of myself — this kind of skill I discovered I have and that I can’t put word on it… I have it very deeply indeed from always but I manage to take it out of this deep myself only when I use the tool of male erotism and sensuality… I don’t analyse anymore this process, but I notice it all along my creation with a sort of pleased incapacity… my brushes or my knives always follow one way: my attraction for some representation of male body, of some models or some other painters artwork (very few) and the emotion that all this brings with it, in fact without this “male nude” impulsion I have the feeling that I won’t do anything good…
I often ask myself the following question since I began to paint three years ago: what make me shivering, what exalt me so much always in life, what bring such strong desire in me ? i don’t even ask myself WHY anymore, but I answer again and again this question without word in painting, it’s a sort of answer just in 500 pictures… Of course this answer comes from this deep me, from my childwood too, my teenwood and finally my present grown-up life. There was a time when I looked for myself and then I faced the “plural desire” which the society displaid in this case … I have also the project to analyse my life under a sort of open biography with the main role of erotism (see the textin french following) and of a kind of sexuality without limit which has been my life till 5 years ago…
What do I mean by “plural desire” ?
I think about the homosexual desire and the image of it by the media today : for the media to be gay it’s like to be a prostitute who sleeps here and there every single time and I had a long time problems to put myself out of this image because everything bring me back to it… but I succeed thanks to some people, some friends I think and some events in my life which made me think a lot about what I am doing do do in this world finally… in my case, this plural desire stopped me during a long time to be stable and to know the complete affection of one single person… be sure that I succeed finally but only after a long work on myself which manage to go far from this… — let say– image of the “gay bitch” which the society with the media still shows today through the mirror of the gay stereoptype, despite the rare partnership and isolated gay mariages which are still controversal and don’t manage to make forget this image in my opinion and to stop the rejection of many other people (even gay people) because it is a terribly negative image and most persons follow it blindly being a caricature of it… That doesn’t mean that gay mariage is bad at all! don’t misunderstand me: for the moment till the homo-erotic sensuality will express and show itself by this plural desire acting here and there, gay mariage won’t be a reality. For my little story this plural desire finally finished and managed to metamorphose in one unique desire, but this was the end and the price of a very strong emotional choc that I lived, a sort of electro-choc which happened in Serbia (in Kosovo and at the Bulgarian border)…
Je dois revenir en arrière et décrire le fil depuis l’adolescence ou même depuis l’enfance jusqu’à aujourd’hui. Dire comment j’étais devenu à l’âge de 30 ans une sorte de machine inhumaine malgré mes rêves d’enfant… Je ne regrette pas ces années qui ont été une sorte de libération nécessaire mais qui ne pouvaient continuer sans une suite dangereusement inhumaine où je me serais perdu : si je devais compter les rencontres que j’ai eu en l’espace de 12 ans, entre l’âge de 24 ans et de 36 ans, entre mes débuts en ville – seul dans un 20 m² à Toulouse, jusqu’à la fin à Prague – lorsque j’étais en colocation quelques jours pour m’apercevoir que ce n’était plus possible, j’atteindrais le nombre de… mille partenaires! Je me suis aperçu que toutes ces renconttres ne m’amenaient à rien, elles se ressemblaient toutes puisqu’elles se résumaient toujours à la même jouissance, au même jeu sexuel ou bien elles avaient perdu ce piquant que je leur avais trouvé à partir de l’age de 17 ans… Au bout du compte, douze ans de rencontres n’avaient pas réussi à effacer cette solitude qui m’accablait déjà à l’adolescence, voir même enfant.
J’ai rencontré A. cela a duré cinq ans mais on n’a pas été prêts : j’avais 27 ans et lui 23. Depuis trois ans, quand je l’ai rencontré, je commençai à peine à vraiment m’ouvrir à la vie. J’habitais au centre ville… Cette ouverture n’avait lieu qu’alors malgré mes multiples essais dès mes 17 ans. A 17 ans, sans avoir la majorité légale pour le faire, j’ai quitté le berceau familial pour aller sur les routes rencontrer la vie… pendant ces sept premières années où je voulais être un adulte jusqu’à mes 24 ans, je suis resté dans la maison familliale en essayant de voyager le plus possible… (à suivre…)
Geo: Ce que je fais depuis le début (2009) c’est exprimer ma vision à travers toutes les influences de peintres, de photographes, de modèles et de sculpteurs de tous les temps : ma vision de l’érotisme masculin.

All my paintings (248 today) belong to collections from all around the world: US, France, Australia, Belgium, Netherlands, Great Britain. Or they are still in the workshop waiting for you… They were painted in 2009 and 2010.
New series: Fashion, Cité, Sofa, Manhattan, Boy in the grass, Andy Warhol, Metal and the controversal (censored by ebay) Hot series of course…
Boy in the grass series:
The Andy Warhol series:
Some Andy Warhol Factory words I made mine:
“Every day something new”
“…he was working day and night on his paintings…”
“…so that he could mass-produce images the way capitalist corporations mass produce consumer goods…”
“Covered with tin foil and silver paint, the Factory was decorated by Warhol’s friend Billy Name… The silver represented the decadence of the scene, as well as the proto-glam of the early sixties. Silver, fractured mirrors, and tin foil were the basic decorating materials loved by the early amphetamine users of the sixties. Billy Name was the perfect person to take this style and cover the whole factory, even the elevator. By combining the industrial structure of the unfurnished studio with the glitter of silver and what it represented, Warhol was commenting on American values, as he did so often in his art. The years spent at the Factory were known as the Silver Era, not solely because of the design, but because of the decadent and carefree lifestyle full of money, parties, drugs and fame.” I should think about it :)) already begin to paint with silver acrylic last week (At the Sea 10)…
The Metal series:
“Nudity, graphic sexuality, drug use, same-sex relations and transgender characters appear in some form in almost all of his work filmed at the Silver Factory. Considered socially unacceptable, even appalling at the time…”
The Hot series: “Fuck me!”, “Blow jobs”, “69″ etc.
The “pissing” series:
“La cité” series is all about Paris and the big french cities suburb gay life…
The Beer series:
Here in Budapest the canicule is starting…. That means that I will have to change my life again in relation with the non-possibhle-to-do-anything-outside afternoons and this during about three months.
But fortunately I have many programs for the next three months: the 7th of july I will have two weeks of intensive courses in hungarian in the morning (like that no problem with the dog days), then the 23d of july we go with “the group” to a villa near Szeged; then the 4th of august my sister and her two children come to see Budapest and I go with them in France to Toulouse 5 days after and will stay 5 weeks in France… Then the 4th of september A. comes in Toulouse and we fly back to Budapest the 14th of september with my mother who will stay with us till the 24th of august…
Maybe because of the heat wave arrival, last night I was touching up 4 of my paintings during hours:
Hello, on the way of the easter holidays I found a picture in a popular newspaper of a naked alter ego of David Beckam (have your own opinion : in the video) which became my new project : to paint this male nude. Then I imagined the situation and an oil on canvas, a little bit comic, a little symbolic (the Christ for easter) appeared little by little…
Easter is far already but I have this witness of my feelings, this parody of a Christ, like the artists Pierre and Gilles… Spring in Budapest with its bloo,ing trees in each corner is so beautiful that I painted a view of the hungarian capitale.
Nowdays I began to copy 4 male characters of Delavaux. But if last winter the timing 3days1painting seemed to be easy to handle, now the days seem too short to do all I would like to accomplish…
The painting will be ready thursday on the 16th… I am in a little village of Hungary, thus i am no more painting during 4 days but i worked : I had to translate during three days for a Bangkok agency. My painting is stopped after 1/16th painted (the upper left corner and the first face draft) and i have already two new ideas : to put a view of Budapest in the upper right corner and maybe some water down…//Le tableau sera fini jeudi 16 avril… Je suis dans un petit village de Hongrie, donc je ne peins plus pendant 4 jours mais j’ai travaillé : j’ai dû traduire pendant trois jours pour une agence de Bangkok. Mon tableau est arrêté après 1/16e peint (le côté gauche en haut et la première version du visage) et déjà deux nouvelles idées me sont venues : mettre une vue de Budapest dans le côté droit et peut-être de l’eau en bas où se reflèterait le bas du personnage…//
