Olivier Schrauwen (b. 1977) calls himself a tinkerer. Since his award-winning debut, Schrauwen’s work has achieved international success, and the author has become something of a phenomenon. He has a highly confident style that teeters between fluid naturalism and graphic abstraction. Schrauwen's comics are consistently surprising, while unraveling a mysterious thread that binds all of his works together. Art Spiegelman (of ‘Maus’ fame) referred to him as ‘the most original cartoonist I’ve fallen onto since Chris Ware or Ben Katchor’.
