Barroux is our artist in residence this year at the Institut français where he will be bringing his pens and brushes in the run-up to the festival. This year he won the PEN Promotes award for the graphic novel Alpha, the story of a man who leaves Ivory Coast to be reunited with his family in France. Barroux is as comfortable working on colourful and lighter-hearted books as he is providing gritty illustrations for more sensitive subjects such as migration or the First World War.
