He grew up in France and studied art, obtaining national diplomas from recognized art schools (DNAP - National Diploma of Visual Arts); DNSEP - Higher National Diploma of Visual Expressions). After his studies, he lived in Paris for ten years where he worked for local NGO's.

In 2015, he returned to live in Vietnam and works as a visual artist. In his artistic practice, he tries to illustrate his personal research concerning the trajectory of his family, fromthe Mekong Delta to exile, to elsewhere.

The use of simple raw materials (such as rice cakes, incense, plastic bags, raw oil painting, water) allows him to go to the essence of the subject, and to try to extract all of its depth. For his next exhibition, he is preparinga mobile exhibition in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City about Vietnamese votive objects.
