Looking for space, he discovered the charm of Bresse du Jura where he installed his home workshop to invest his time in teaching the visual arts, and creation.

He says that he doesn't belong to any particular trend, instead he expresses himself through an open visual language. Damian exhibits both in France, and abroad.
