A pioneer in Modest Art, Herv. di Rosa founded the International Museum of Modest Art in S.te. He initiated the French movement of Free Figuration. Cartoons, popular art and primitive art influence his painting. Hervé di Rosa has travelled extensively, searching the world for forgotten artisan techniques with local artists. Highly coloured and tinged with surrealism, Le Roi de Coeur is a dreamlike, benevolent character. The original sculpture has been carried out in Cameroun.
