Artist in Residence

From 5 to 13 October, French author and illustrator Barroux will be our artist in residence at the Institut français! The author of Where’s the Elephant, Welcome and Mr. Leon’s Paris is acting as Children’s Ambassador in the run-up to the 2016 South Ken Kids Festival.

He will be coming to us with his playful starfish, drifting polar bears, voracious ogre and artistic dog to decorate a wall of our Bibliothèque Quentin Blake, as well as holding workshops and running all over London to meet actors from the illustration world.

He will be returning to the Institut français in November for the South Ken Kids Festival where you’ll be able to see him live on stage in a powerful staged rendition of his graphic novel Alpha. He will also be joined by David Litchfield for a Drawing Duo and give a workshop to little aspiring illustrators!

Meet the illustrator on 11 Oct, 4.00pm
