Originally from the North of France, Julie Maroh was trained at the Saint-Luc Institute in Brussels and then at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts. She released her first album in 2010, Blue is a warm colour : a story on the theme of female homosexuality and its acceptance in today's society. This book receives several prizes including the Audience Prize at the Angoulême Festival in 2011 and is the subject of an adaptation to the cinema with The Life of Adele, Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival 2013. After a second graphic novel, Skandalon, a sociological fable embodied by a rock star playing on the thread of prohibitions, she recently published Sound bodies, a comic book collection of 21 new love affairs taking place in Montreal.
