Gainsbourg Still Alive Project
Gainsbourg Still Alive is the result of a dialogue between the portraits shooted by photographer Roberto Battistini in 1985 and many contemporary artists.The iconic Gainsbourg-Dalí picture, which merges two emblematic figures into one single portrait, has triggered surprising reinterpretations.
An exercise which has brought multi-faceted artworks to life, connecting together generations of artists from all over the world.

He holds a degree in Cinema from the University of Paris VIII, and is a graduate student of the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris.
