His work reflects states of subconsciousness, translated across multiple disciplines such as painting, photography and performance. Since early 2000’s, Skoya devoted himself to create personal techniques, in which intricate textures overflow. His art embodies “dreams and poems, feelings of love and rage, seasons and celestial bodies, and far beyond”, as he states. Born and raised in Paris, he has lived in many different cities since then: this nomadic life has shaped his artistic influences and repertoire. works conceived worldwide were presented in New York, Tokyo, Amsterdam and Paris.
