Kayoumin was born in an art-friendly family to a mother with crafty hands. He got the mother’s artistic instinct and sensitivity since childhood, but only acted on them 40 years later. At the age of 15, he had the chance to get into radio broadcasting, and became one of the youngest radio hosts in France. After graduating from Paris Broadcasting School, he found himself so attracted by Chinese Kungfu, and decided to pursue it in newly-opened China. It was early 1990s.
Just before arriving in Taiwan, he discovered in 2007 a photography effect called “negative”. He was highly intrigued and kept studying the specificities as a hobby, until he opened Cellier Wine Gallery in 2015.
The gallery provided him with the perfect platform to display a concept he began to master. He created a collection of work called “Not Totally Negative”, taking people to his exploration of the world in its negative face. Kayoumin is currently in Taipei.
