Baptiste Tavernier, born 1981 in France, pursues a creative path that has led him from experimental music to contemporary art through the martial arts of Japan
Tavernier studied digital arts and musical composition at Paris University. He changed path in 2006 and decided to join the prestigious International Martial Arts University in Chiba, Japan, where he trained for ten years in modern Budo and several traditional martial styles.
