I love the French wave of comic art from the 70s and 80s, often featuring post apocalyptic sci fi worlds. This great painted work by master Druillet is evocative of that era. This piece is titled, 'Metal Hurlant' (Screaming metal) like the magazine...A large twice up sized painting that is so very beautiful! I believe this was printed in one of his later art books.

J'aime la vague française de bandes dessinées des années 70 et 80, mettant souvent en scène des mondes de science-fiction post-apocalyptiques. Ce grand travail peint du maître Druillet évoque cette époque. Cette pièce s’intitule «Metal Hurlant» (Le métal hurlant), à l’instar du magazine… Un grand tableau deux fois plus grand et très beau! Je crois que cela a été imprimé dans l'un de ses derniers livres d'art.

About Philippe Druillet

Philippe Druillet ( born June 28, 1944) is a French comics artist and creator, and an innovator in visual design. Druillet was born in Toulouse, Haute-Garonne, France but spent his youth in Spain, returning to France in 1952 after the death of his father. A science fiction and comics fan, Philippe worked as a photographer after graduating from high school, drawing only for his own pleasure. His first book appeared in 1966, entitled Le Mystère des abîmes (The Mystery of the Abyss). It introduced his recurring hero Lone Sloane and played on science-fiction themes partially inspired by his favourite writers, H. P. Lovecraft and A.E. van Vogt. Later Druillet created book covers for republications of Lovecraft's work, as well as numerous movie posters.
