At the age of eight, as he is walking with schoolmates, Jim Skull comes across a human skull.
This precise moment represents a tipping point, and a fascination for this “object” develops that will never diminish.
He sands, coats, glues, and shapes cardboard skulls.
The filmmaker Stéphane Dubrana paints the portrait of this astonishingly joyful artist.
