Biography

After completing college studies in visual arts, Frédéric decides to favor long stays abroad. The result was a self-taught practice with regard to large-format painting, which lasted a decade. In 2017, he began experimenting with the medium of stop motion animation by directing the short film Aracati, completed in 2018. The following two years are dedicated to the creation of his second film Encapsulated Feast. After which, he leaves his studio and begins an outdoor production, on site. This is how the series of 7 in 7 in situ animations was created in the summer of 2021. Since then, Frédéric has been working on a new animated project inspired by multiple trips to Italy: «Une parcelle».
