Nicolas was born in 1975 in France. After studying at Beaux-Arts in Rennes (France) and architecture/ product design at Camondo in Paris, he left to travel for almost a year all around Asia.2001, Nicolas stopped in Singapore where he opened a creative studio/showroom, doing art direction for brands and hosting exhibitions (such as ChinArt town, where he had his first solo show). He became afterwards creative director for a French luxury house which sent him to Tokyo, Japan, in 2008. His second solo exhibition “the state I am in” was hosted in the Chanel building  in Tokyo, in 2012. After 5 years in Japan, he moved  to Hong Kong, still as a creative director, and also own an independent music label in China. In 2016, he teamed up with photographer Vanessa Franklin to present a collaborative project “Lives & works in Hong Kong” , a series of portraits mixing photography and ink. Nicolas works mostly with ink on paper, using objects such as kimono, Japanese wooden shoes, mahjong dices, stamps, ink rollers, wood blocks…He currently lives and works in Lisbon.
