Born in France in 1966, Blexbolex entered art school with the intention of becoming a painter, but left having discovered his talent as a silk screen artist. He works regularly with book publishers in France and Germany as an illustrator and comic book artist. His work, which is inspired by vintage design, mixes old printing methods with new interpretations and techniques. His book Seasons was selected as a New York Times Best Illustrated book of 2010.
