a.k.a @almatreb

I am a multicultural/racial/lingual French Caribbean artist, educator and author. 

Up to adulthood, I struggled with my racial identity.

Skin color and racial divide always tore me apart.

So through art, I speak.

 I represent figures of different cultural and marginalized groups, their story, their dreams, and their creativity.

Through these images I ask WHY being of different HUES seems to be such an issue for humans. 

I'm excited mainly by facial expressions, hair

and strong symbols, all wrapped in bold colors, uneven planes, and diverse tools and media.

I play with different techniques from

pop art to uninterrupted lines, pointillism and acrylic portraits.

I'm also the owner of L'Expression Creative Studios Inc.,

a multicultural paint and sip company on a diversity mission in Southern California, USA.

I'm tackling the same cultural questions through stories for kids.

My first book was published in May 2020.

Follow for the series of Mr. Moo and his incredible journeys to find himself and understand others.
