VILDEMAN peint, tout en travaillant simultanément à la réalisation de gravures et de sculptures. Faisant appel à diverses techniques qui vont de la peinture au dessin, en passant par les pochoirs et les écritures, VILDEMAN conçoit son travail comme un assemblage d'indices graphiques tout en équilibre avec un vraie travail de peintre de la couleur. Pour ce faire, depuis de nombreuses années il collecte des images issues de la mémoire collective et [dans l’imagerie du monde], afin de se constituer une "encyclopédie" visuelle. L'artiste sélectionne des fragments qu'il agence pour que, une fois rassemblés, ceux-ci "deviennent porteur[s] de symboles, de sens poétique [inconsciente] ’’ ou d’engagement. Son univers créatif est également nourri de l'ensemble des images découpées dans les magazines, traitant de sujets aussi divers que la publicité, l'actualité, l'imagerie populaire ou bien encore qui font écho à son histoire personnelle, à sa mythologie personnelle. Rapprochant sa démarche artistique à celle d'un chanteur de Maloya – musique traditionnelle réunionnaise –, VILDEMAN exerce son art de manière à la fois avec rigueur dans la construction de l’œuvre, à l’intérieur d’un cadre [rythme] qu’il met lui-même en place ; et de manière spontanée dans le lâché prise, afin de permettre à son inconscient de s'exprimer en toute liberté.
