    Born in 1970, François Ducas lives in Pointe-aux-Trembles where he participates at Les Impatients workshops with great passion. This artist lives with an intellectual disability and is fascinated with the world of television and the day-to-day lives of the stars, with a love for rebellious characters.

    He has created wonderful marker portraits with punk and rebellion themes. With this in mind, he loves integrating a political meaning into his work; particularly about the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq, sometimes throwing off his viewers with, for example, his drawing My Friend Bin Laden, or when he represented Jesus on the cross depicted as a rich celebrity, covered in dollar signs and gold. Relationships, love and sexuality are also important themes represented in his creations.

    François Ducas’ writing is also often coupled with deep imagery, taking the form of exuberant narratives. For example: “This beautiful woman I wish to marry someday, and have a child with, the beautiful mother of my child, I love her because she is naked.”

    In these tensions between anger and desire, Eros and Thanatos, Ducas depicts characters that are tremendously relatable.

    Designed by a scientist and based on scientific search, this face mask allow the best natural filtration and comfort to breathe.

    For more protection, you can add a DIY filter or surgical mask inside the mask
