A native of Nantes, Bernard Briantais has been drawing street scenes since childhood in this city.
His drawings are ferocious when it comes to the simulacra of hyper-consumerist society, but tender when it comes to the humble. He takes a warm, sympathetic look at the lonely and the marginalized, to whom he restores dignity and a place of honour.
His sketches have something of the Commedia dell’Arte about them. His style is reminiscent of that of Pellos, the artist behind the Pieds-Nickelés comic strip. He offers us humorous interludes to give us cause for optimism.
His buffoonish little comedies will delight you every day!
