Comment

Autant j'apprécie le travail de Rabaté, autant ses lavis et acryliques m'ont toujours laissé une impression de mal-être profond, de souffrance à peine contenue.

Cette couverture à l'acrylique, fusion de Charlie Parker avec son saxophone, métamorphosé pour l'occasion en oiseau (le surnom de l'artiste) est par contre d'une merveilleuse sérénité.

About Pascal Rabaté

Pascal Rabaté is one of the main representatives of French contemporary comics, best known for his Tolstoi adaptation 'Ibicus'. Born in Tours, he didn't start his professional career in comics and illustration before he was 28 years old. After 'Chrétiens Dans le Diocèse de Saint-Étienne' (Fleurus, 1989), he published three books with Futuropolis, 'Exode' (1989), 'Les Amants de Lucie' (1989) and 'Vacances, Vacances' (1990). In 1991, he created 'À Table' at Week-End Doux and 'Signé Raoul' at Éditions Rackham. In the following year Rabaté began his trilogy 'Les Pieds Dedans' at Vents d'Ouest. At the same time, Rabaté contributed the story 'Les Cerisiers' to the collection Patte de Mouche. In 1994, he created 'Ex Voto/Monsieur Verbun' with Angelo Zamparutti, and in 1996 started 'Dans les Vignes du Seigneur' in Gotham, which was renamed 'Un Ver Dans le Fruit' for the book publication. Between 1998 and 2001 he made the critically acclaimed series 'Ibicus', an adaptation of the Tolstoi novel, for Vents d'Ouest. Rabaté teamed up with Zamparutti again to create 'Un Temps de Toussaint' at Amok. Following a trip through South-Africa, he produced 'Bienvenue à Jobourg', a comic album published by Le Seuil. In 2006 he was back at Futuropolis with the awardwinning comic 'Les Petits Ruisseaux'. Text (c) Lambiek
