2021 was the first year of the Comic Art Europe project, during which the partners have been able to set up many various initiatives. Among them, our first Open Call, allowing five talented artists to develop their art by taking a two-week residency in one of our partners institutions.

One year later, we are happy to announce that those 5 artists will exhibit their  “Visions of Tomorrow” in two great exhibitions that will respectively take place between the 10th and the 12th of June during the Lyon BD festival, and between the 14th and the 16th of October during the LICAF festival. The different artists will not only exhibit their work, but also take part in different workshops during the festival itself. So make space for Filipa Beleza, Marine des Mazery, Karrie Fransman, Meikel Mathias, and Maria Surducan!


Five talented artists, all different, each unique

Maria Surducan is a Romanian artist that developed a project of drawn concert. “Timemongers” is a fairytale told on stage, blending images and music to produce a complete show approaching many actual topics.

The German artist Meikel Mathias imagined a comic book where conspiracy theories lead the story. A middle-aged couple arrives in Kendal to speak as guest speakers at a gathering of conspiracy theorists and various conspiracy theorists and various events are taking place throughout the weekend.

Karrie Fransmans is an artist coming from England. She created the “Metopia vs Youtopia” experience, a virtual universe based on her own utopia in which the spectator will be completely emerged for a unique trip.

Marine des Mazery, from France, will exhibit her project “Underwater Fate”, a silent project with a double reading level. The first drawing that readers see is red, but there is also an underlying light blue line in some places. When the lector puts on the red glasses, they discover the other side of the story, the blue one. The plot compares 2 worlds, 2 visions of the future…

Last but not least, the Portuguese artist Filipa Beleza developed a project called “Conflicted”. A comic book that covers the topic of the climate change, analyzing the human behavior, often contradictory and sometimes funny, to save the planet.
