Christelle Pecout

Invited to the 2017 Books & Music Festival

Born in Seoul (South Korea) in 1976, Christelle Pécout was adopted in Marseille. She discovered comics with Moebius and manga with Akira. After studying fashion design in Marseille and Paris, she graduated in 1996 from the Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne. She entered the ESI (the fine arts school of Angoulême), comic book option, and obtained her DNAP in 1999. In 1999/2000, she tried the adventure of the Internet bubble by making some websites, then she came back to comics. She then moved to Paris where she currently lives, in the XIIIth arrondissement, in the heart of the Asian district. From 2013 to 2015, she worked on her project K-SHOCK, about K-pop for Glénat. At the same time, she drew a comic book biopic of Björk, based on Guillaume Lebeau's script, released on November 12, 2015. She often travels to Asia, a region that interests her because of its origins, but which also fascinates her particularly by its energy, and its popular cultures mixing modernity and tradition. Her main inspirations are photography, travels, and she kept from her studies of fashion design the taste for costume and clothing.
