This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

After studying at the Angoulême comics art school, Nicolas De Crécy made his debut in 1987 with Bug Jargal, an adaptation of a work by Victor Hugo, adapted by his friend Sylvain Chomet. Then he worked for two years with the French Walt Disney Studios.

Meanwhile, he found the time to make the highly acclaimed album Foligatto, scripted by fellow Angoulême school artist Alexios Tjoyas. This utterly surreal story about a castrato opera singer in a seemingly eighteenth-century Italian city, immediately made De Crécy one of the most important young comics authors.

His baroque, Klimt-like drawings and unusual use of color gave ’Foligatto’ its uniquely haunting atmosphere.
