Starting his artistic career in comic strip and watercolor, the self-taught French artist stylizes his artwork with his surrealistic stroke and a sense of humor. Full of allegory and symbols, the whimsical imagery is more than just the candy for the eyes, but also tastes of sourness and bitterness. Flowers in the paintings indicate the fleetness of life, while girls a homage to femininity and fertility; a sailor cruises to the unknown world with the companion of love, reincarnated as a mermaid; the fisherman, using moonlight and stars as bait, allegorizes the artist who strives to catch people's eye with his peculiar ideas. These emblematic characters, as Pendelio's signature in his artwork, are interacting with the painted fairyland from which they are inseparable. Carefree as they may look, they all have their own stories and are in search of hope and happiness, just as is done in real life.
He focuses on the magic of childhood tales and how we should treasure them throughout our lives.
