A cow and a calf An ox and a half A church and a steeple And all the good people And yet he complained that his stomach wasn’t full ». (The Nursery Rhyme Book, Andrew Lang, 1897) The story of Robin the Bobbin had a particular impact on me as a child. It is very famous in Russia and was translated, as many others, by Samouil Iakovlevitch Marchak. This poem is very funny and metaphorical. It tells the story of an enormous child who complains that he is not given enough food though he has devoured everything on his path. In France, of course, this story reminds you of the life of Gargantua and Festival Mister Freeze - Toulouse Pantagruel, by François Rabelais. It was very important for me to adapt to the wall, which is part of a nursery school, and do a very joyous and colourful painting for the children while telling them a universal story about the temporality of life.

First of all, painting in the street is an easy way to reach the public because the work exists in the spectator’s eye. What I find interesting about artistic expression in the street it to be able to display something sensible and personal in a functional landscape. Furthermore, the ephemeral aspect of outside paintings motivates me to paint different, original, spontaneous and free forms. Something that may be specifically important to me is how the « Nightlife » space and context influence the line in the painting, makes it more vivid..
