A renowned comic artist from Canada, Guy Delisle has been able to create over the years a unique style of his own through an autobiographical personage with an observant and spontaneous look. A master of serious light-heartedness, his work represents little snapshots of everyday life and speaks volumes about humanity. From the “Aventures de Louis” to the “Chroniques de Jérusalem”, Alliance Française de Singapour and Editions Delcourt invite you to discover or rediscover the works of this master of journalistic comics.

Born in 1966 in Quebec (Canada), he is passionate child-at-heart for classic Franco-Belgian comics such as Asterix, Tintin, Blake and Mortimer, and especially Lucky Luke, such that he decided to become a comic artist himself. His works have been translated into fifteen languages. In 2013, he returned to humorous comics with Le guide du mauvais père (The Owner’s Manual to Terrible Parenting), the first volume of which has sold over 85,000 copies to date.
