Jean-Michel Folon

Jean-Michel Folon (1934-2005) was a Belgian artist and illustrator who made, among other things, watercolours, silkscreens, etchings, mosaics and sculptures. His clients included the New Yorker, Time, Esquire, Amnesty International, the United Nations and Greenpeace, and he illustrated books by Franz Kafka, Jacques Prévert, Guy de Maupassant and Ray Bradbury. He also created an animated sequence for the nightly closing down of French TV channel Antenne 2 with music by Michel Colombier, which you can see here.

More Folon: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, plus obituaries at the Guardian and Independent.
