DUO is a collaborative project of international scope, initiated over 10 years ago by Gérald Guerlais and Sébastien Mesnard, both illustrators. For more than ten years, two real notebooks have welcomed in their pages the collaborations of 110 artists, from Paris to London, and from San Francisco to Los Angeles.
Among them, we find great names like Kim Jung Gi (South Korea), Juanjo Guarnido (Spain) and Benjamin Lacombe (France) but also less known emerging artists. They come from illustration, comics, and animation, and have combined their talents to go beyond the distinctions of genres and media and offer you these duos gathered, for the first time, in a unique book and presented in a bilingual version.
« Some duos were spontaneously established, when each artist knew who he or she wanted to share a page with. Some duos were arranged when artists didn't know each other, didn't dare express their admiration for one another or simply didn't know who they wanted to mix their brushes with. »
Gérald Guerlais et Sébastien Mesnard
You may identify the style of some well-known artists, who were humble enough to share, not only their pages, but also their renown with lesser-known colleagues. Some pairs have blended their art so well that no one could tell who did what. Others have simulated duels, staging brotherly rivalry or genuine complicity. New friendships sprang up, old ones were confirmed, love affairs occurred, ephemeral or not. You know some names, or, at least, their world and characters. Others may not ring a bell, yet in the anonymity of famous animation studios or major brands, they contribute daily to major works and leave their mark on the collective cultural subconscious.
