Frédéric Stehr

Invited to the Books & Music Festival 2017

Frédéric Stehr, born in 1956, the sixth of a family of seven sons, has shortly attended the silkscreen printing section of the Ecole professionnelle supérieure des arts graphiques de Paris.
He preferred by far going to the public gardens to draw for hours. He left the Beaux-Arts to earn his living with odd jobs.
During a temporary assignment at the École des loisirs, which became his publishing hours, his passion for drawing and tell stories through images could develop: “I’ve learned to tell stories with Arthur Hubschmid and Marcus Osterwalder.”
His first album titled Je n’ai pas faim was published in 1983. Since then, he published about sixty albums including series Foufours with his brother, Gérald Stehr, the Calinours series with Alain Broutin, and the Mariette et Soupir series written by Irène Schwartz.
