Biography

Jean-Michel Folon was a Belgian artist, illustrator, painter, and sculptor.

He was born on 1 March 1934 in Uccle, Brussels, Belgium in 1934. He studied architecture at the Institut Saint-Luc.

Jean-Michel Folon became internationally known in the 1960s for his illustrations of works by famous artists such as Franz Kafka and Boris Vian, and for his poster and advertisement designs. Among other things, the Olivetti (typewriter) advertising campaigns of the 1950s and 1960s are marked by his signature and have been included in numerous poster collections. In addition, he sketched a wide variety of newspaper and magazine articles (including Time magazine) with his illustrations accompanying the topics, which were often used as covers. His pictures are often laid out in a light and subtle as well as surrealistic-melancholic watercolour and pen technique.

Folon's works, watercolours, sculptures and paintings have been exhibited in all the world's renowned museums.
