Maxime lives in the Channel where he has his own forge:

«I’m working on this living iron that I love, I work with the elements, fire, air and water to stage daily life and share my dreams, my passions and emotions. 1,200 degrees to its melting, I print and model the moment in which I find myself».

Since 2013, his compositions now lead him to the monumental achievements. French Arts Factory gallery represents the artist since 2015.
