About Daniel Goossens

Daniel Goossens is one of the main artists of the humorous comics magazine Fluide Glacial, and a master of the surreal. Goossens' stories can be best compared to the absurd sketches of the British comedy group Monty Python. Goossens picks conventions from literature, film, television and history, and gives them a surreal twist. His serial 'Route vers l'enfer' is a war film pastiche starring Father Christmas, while 'La Vie d'Einstein' tears down the myth of the theory of relativity and its inventor. He often uses the same documentary approach as his mentor Gotlib, as his stories are populated with TV hosts, interviewees and talkshow guests. The strangeness of his characters and his illusions of reality are even more emphasized through his semi-realistic drawing style. Besides a cartoonist, Goossens is also a lecturer and researcher in artificial intelligence at the University of Paris VIII. Text (c) Lambiek
