Bologna & Bologna / 2

On our last day in Bologna we visited a nice exhibition about the city itself, curated by Hamelin with the drawings of the hyper talented Bernardo Carvalho (Planeta Tangerina). And some ochra tone pictures of the Archiginnasio (16th century), once the site of the first University in the world.

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.
