I was born in Mauritius on the 7th of August 1968 and started painting in 1986. I quickly became fluent in various techniques such as Oils, Acrylics, Watercolour, Pastels, Ink, charcoal and etching on copper and zinc plates.
I produced my first art exhibition in solo in 1996 at the Max Boullé Gallery in Rose-Hill, Mauritius. Encouraged by the critics, I proposed to the Mauritian public solo art exhibitions in 1998, 2000, 2002, 2006 and 2014. In 2009 I participated in a group exhibition in Lausanne - Switzerland. In 2015, I participated in an exhibition at L'Aventure du Sucre on the theme: "Rodrigues," with my friend, the photographer Christian Bossu-Picat. In 2020, I proposed one painting in an exhibition organised by the Australian High Commission at the Caudan Art Centre.
In 2018, I published my first short stories book in French and in 2020, my first novel ;
John Berik, Cabri c'est fini !
I am also a photographer. Since the arrival of digital photography, I embraced this new passion.. I started creating photomontages that I call PhotoArt. In 2019, I participated in my first photo exhibition at the S’mall & Chic gallery in Curepipe.
