IMAGE REPUBLIC | Jacques de Loustal | Paradis Pour Touristes | 40x50cm
At the end of the 1970s, while still a student studying architecture, Jacques de Loustal began publishing illustrations in Rock & Folk magazine. There, he met journalist Philippe Paringaux, who wrote several comic book scenarios published in French magazines Métal Hurlant.
Together, the pair wrote and illustrated nearly a dozen comic strip albums, including ‘Barney et la note bleue’, ‘Coeurs de sable’, ‘Kid Congo’ and ‘Le sang des voyous’. Loustal, who was born in 1956, also worked with other writers including Jerôme Charyn, Jean Luc Coatalem, Dennis Lehane and Tonino Benacquista, and collaborated with Jean-Claude Götting.
Loustal also worked as an illustrator in publishing (notably for the works of Georges Simenon), the press (The New Yorker and Senso, among others) and advertising, all while regularly exhibiting his paintings in Paris and Brussels.
A great travel enthusiast, Loustal brought back sketchbooks from his journeys which were first published by Seuil, and later by La Table Ronde.
