GARAGE Education Center
The award-wining French artist and author of popular comic books Marc-Antoine Mathieu talks about his work.
The talk is organized in collaboration with the French Embassy and the French Cultural Center in Moscow. It is moderated by translator and cultural theorist Mikhail Khachaturov.
Marc-Antoine Mathieu (b. 1959) is the author of numerous comic books, including the winner of the Angouleme International Comics Festival Prize, Julius Corentin Acquefacques, prisonnier des reves. Mathieu's black and white drawings impress readers with their high artistic quality, as well as the rich and complex stories they tell. The artist is inspired by the works of Kafka and Borges and uses all the graphic potential of the comic-book genre to create his thrilling stories.
In October 2006 Mathieu's Les Sous-sols du Révolu - Extraits du journal d'un expert was published as part of the joint publishing program of the Louvre Museum and Futuropolis publishers, a series of comic books by various artists dedicated to the Louvre and its collections. Mathieu also participated in the exhibition of the program held at the museum in 2009.
