Art Atak

So nice going to BilBolBul, international comic festival in Bologna! We went to a conference with the beloved Blexbolex and Atak, followed by the brilliant exhibit Mirabilia showing Atak's impressive corpus of work. He shares his vision of a booming chaotic world, extremely rich in visual quotes, with a fascinating mixture of old & new languages and media: screenprinting, chromolitography, cartoon, American pop culture, cinema and advertising, kitsch toys and traditional painting.

Recommended: the little book Ada, based on a Gertrude Stein's text (more about, here).
A big 'bravo' to Hamelin and our friends of Inuit for organizing it all !
