Détails de l'évènement

Born in the former GDR, Georg Barber has been using the pseudonym ATAK since the end of the 1980s, a punk period during which he covered the walls of East Berlin with graffiti and trained as a painter of letters. Today, a tutelary figure of contemporary comics, professor of illustration and author of remarkable children’s books, ATAK deploys a palette nourished by all his influences: in each drawing, in each publication, he unashamedly interweaves periods, genres and references from the history of art or popular imagery.

With the Still Life series created for the Studio Fotokino, he uses the codes of still life to host the innumerable objects of his personal collection (some of which are present alongside his paintings), but also takes advantage of the opportunity to erect real graphic altars dedicated to his heroes. In this new set of paintings, you will come face to face with Tintin, Caspar David Friedrich, Cheburashka, Gumby, Dick Tracy, Audubon, Little Nemo or Jockum Nordström. So many visual quotes from ATAK’s personal museum.
