About Roland Topor

Roland Topor was one of the most surreal and versatile artists of the second half of the 20th century. He gained notoriety as one of the home cartoonists of the subversive French magazine Hara-Kiri (later Charlie-Hebdo). While his drawings were not as harsh or political as those of his colleagues, they were certainly disturbing and macabre. They are often surreal juxtapositions of people, animals, plants and objects. Topor seldom used words in his illustrations, leaving all power to the visual. Apart from being a cartoonist Topor was also an illustrator, novelist, actor, playwright, film and TV scriptwriter, singer-songwriter, animator and film director. His most famous novel, 'Le Locataire Chimérique' ('The Tenant', 1964) has been adapted to film by Roman Polanski. Topor was co-director and scriptwriter of the animated feature film 'Le Planète Sauvage' ('Fantastic Planet', 1973) and the puppet film 'Marquis' (1989), which both have become cult classics. His popular children's TV series 'Téléchat' (1983-1986) received many awards and also achieved cult status. His entire body of work is characterized by madness and both black as well as scatological comedy. Text (c) Lambiek
