Bio

Nicolas de Crécy is the first author to be published in the comic book/graphic novel collection initiated by the Louvre Museum with Période Glaciaire (2005) which won numerous prizes, and whose original strips were the subject of an exhibition at the Louvre Museum in 2009-2010. He is also one of the few authors to be published directly in Japan with La République du catch, published by Shueisha Publishing and also published in the monthly Ultrajump. In 2008, as a resident at the Villa Kujoyama, an artistic residence in Kyoto, he developed projects including Kyôto Notebooks or Aesthetics of Everyday Life in Japan, as well as collaborations with Japanese artists (in 2014, he published an Artbook with Tayio Matsumoto). In 2017, in association with Louis Vuitton, he released the fashion house annual Travel Book showcasing the beauty of Mexico as a baroque land full of colors and poetry. Nicolas de Crécy wrote and illustrated the novel Les amours d’un fantôme en temps de guerre, which received the « Prix Vendredi 2018 ». His novel, Vieux Criminels, was published by Gallimard in 2021.

His work, shared between comics, literature, and visual arts, has been the subject of numerous exhibitions as well as translations in Europe, the United States and Japan. Nicolas de Crécy lives and works in Paris, France.
