SLIP vive una vita artistica in più mondi, i suoi collages tornano al futuro e agli anni settanta, a quell’ universo stilistico pop, dai colori basici e netti, con linee pulite dal carattere minimalista.
L’immaginazione di SLip scorre libera su piani opposti alla realtà, dove i ruoli sono inusuali, surreali. Con la sua sfrenata creatività ci permette di riscoprire e ricomporre le zone d’ombra della storia, riportandoci alla riflessione sociale. (ThePT)

øTheP: Who and/or what are some of your influences?
SLip: Maybe Peter Saville for his works with many bands I like and a lot of soviet artists from the 20’s like El Lissitzky. But I like people like Banksy for his intelligence.
øTheP: How would you describe your art to someone who could not see/read it?
SLip: You maybe imagine a weird world where everything is possible. Giant pinguins can go to the beach, A giant basketball ball may be the next planet to reach.
øTheP: How do you prepare yourself for a day of working? Rituals?
SLip: It’s all start with a coffee. Then I start exploring the net, finding news or stories that could be interesting, reading my emails. I began to work on my works, finishing old ideas, starting new works … And so on, until the end of the day. Not very sexy ;o)
øTheP: Which is your favorite piece you have created? and Why?
SLip: It’s difficult because I’m always trying to make pieces I’d love. As I’ve always a preference for my latest works, the next one may be the favorite …
øTheP: If you could spend the day with anyone, living or deceased, whom would you choose and what would hope to gain from the experience?
SLip: I’m not a huge fan of someone. If I could take some moment with the Beatles, it could be interesting. But I think it would be only for my own pleasure …
øTheP: What is your secret ambition?
SLip: I got no secret ambition as an artist. Just hoping to do my best and to be still sincere and having fun
øTheP: What is your favorite word?
SLip: In French, it’s “Putain” cause I use it a thousand time by days minimum ☺
