Jules Le Barazer graduated from the ESAG-Penninghen school in Paris with a degree in graphic design. He worked for several years in advertising before turning to illustration entirely.
Initially fascinated by the underground currents of French design and later by artists with free and flourishing minds like Roland Topor, Tomi Ungerer, Basil Wolverton and Benjamin Rabier, he is inspired by strange and original universes, body fluids, nervous tics, perishable goods and the fantasy world of Mikhaïll Bulgakov’s stories.
Characters with inventive haircuts, humanized objects and animals are staged in outlandish situations, always imbued with a humour that resonates with the absurdity of our society. Jules Le Barazer currently collaborates with many of the leading journals.
