What is Mo's Background?
Mo was born in Paris in the mid-60’s. He was raised and nourished in the Parisian artist enclaves of Saint-Germain des Prés as he prepared for“Les Beaux Arts”Academy.
His early work was strongly influenced by the surrealism of Dali and De Chirrico and later he discovered Picasso and was enlightened by the spontaneous approach to art in Gaudi’s Barcelona.Inspired by such artistic spontaneity Mo establish an interior design consultancy based in Paris, exploring new ways to integrate sculpture and painting, he used light and harmony to bring life to his work.
However Mo began to experience a deep desire to concentrate on his art, exploring new techniques combining an eclectic mix of materials with painting and In 2006 he was awarded a 1st place at “Art et Métier” school.
On a trip to Sydney in 2005 Mo experienced the annual event Sculptures by the Sea and was heartened by the movement of space and freedom to work in the natural environment compelled him to settle in Sydney where he proudly became an Australian citizen in 2011.
His fascination for the female form, curves and lines and the effects of light upon them led him to explore all the curvilinear possibilities offered by resin, furthermore the way that gold and silver leaf can be concealed within it. Using this process he has now been making his unique collection of jewellery for the last 10 years.
During this time the local Art Trail (Bundeena/Maianbar) has provided great opportunities to meet people from all over this great country. Mo is now settled in the Southern Highlands.
