REVIEW FOR CARTOON PICTURE EXHIBITION BY CHRISTIAN CAILLEAUX
It's never too late to create an Indian super-heroine who wears a saree and flies. Or so Christian Cailleaux seems to believe. Hopefully Marvel will eat its socks.
The Alliance Française of Hyderabad and the Kalakrithi Art Gallery, in association with the French Embassy in India, present the cartoon picture exhibition The Flying Saree And Other Adventures, by French cartoonist Christian Cailleaux, from 2nd to 9th March, at the Kalakriti Art Gallery.
Christian Cailleaux is convinced that a simple, almost universal medium such as the cartoon strip can be a formidable tool for communication and sharing. He has used the themes of difference and travel for several years in his albums, and believes that they can help to build a vision of the world which combats ignorance. The result is the birth of an Indian super-heroine: The Flying Saree.
Christian Cailleaux was born in 1967 in a Parisian suburb. He studied Literature and Philosophy, and moved on to the National School of Art in Cergy. Illustrator and comic-strip artist, he has traveled extensively in Africa, the countries of the Indian Ocean, and Canada. He came to India in December 2004 for a 2-month residence to hone his creativity.
