Subsequently, he passed the Contest of Fine Arts in Dijon, which he obtained, before continuing his course in communication. Diplômed in audiovisual and graphic arts in 1996, Péchane must at the same time meet his military obligations the same year . “My idea was not to officer under the flags but in the civilian, as an objector of conscience, for 2 years, then to go to an advertising agency in Paris.” Return to the basics and unexpected discovery of more than 20 years Now, Péchane makes films and photographs in a cultural and social place as an objector of conscience. But he has never forgotten painting, his first love. In 2002, he across a report dedicated to Japan and the ancestral technique of the Sumi-e.
