To celebrate 20 years of ultimate creativity, Bernard Granger (better known as Blexbolex) already published three books this year (L’arrière-pays, published by Orbis Pictus Club, Crimechien and Hors-zone, both by Editions Cornélius), but that’s not nearly enough. And so the travelling gallery Arts Factory brought together two hundred drawings, paintings and rare prints in one exhibition, this time in the exhibition in the Galerie Lavinges-Bastille in Paris.
The show not only includes finished or published works, but also preparatory sketches, colour try-outs and various work from Blexbolex’s sketchbooks. As these examples will attest. Highly recommended, I’d say, at least until there’s a Blexbolex Sketchbook out. The exhibition is on now and runs until November 17th.
Blexbolex, Peintures, Dessins & Editions Rares 1992 / 2012, Arts Factory & Galerie Lavignes-Bastille, 27 Rue De Charonne, in 75011 Paris. Until November 17, from Monday to Friday, 12h30-19h30, Saturdays 11h00-19h30.
