His book "L'Esprit du Geste" (Spirit of the brushstroke) was published by the "Editions du Chêne" constitutes a clear and concise basis for learning tch'an and sumie painting. It offers great personal creativity, more interior and spiritual approach related to the traditions of China and Japan. This teaching allows a just adaptation of our Western perception of Art.
