Nicolas Presl

Born in Vendée in 1976. After a short career as a stonemason, he devoted himself to drawing comic books. In his first three books, published by Atrabile (Priape – 2006, Divine Colonie – Lokator 2013, and Fabrica – Lokator 2013), he developed his distinctive style, easily recognisable both thanks to connections with modern painting (Grosz, Picasso) and the selection of narration without text. He demonstrates an extraordinary sensitivity to history in all his works. This is also shown in the graphic book entitled Le fils de l’ours pere, published in 2010 by The Hoochie Poochie. On 24th October author will talk with Artur Wabik, visual artist.
