the career of Nicolas Keramidas is shown in the exhibition

Nicolas Keramidas was born in Paris in 1972. After studying drawing in Grenoble, he completed his training at CFT Gobelins, animation department, in Paris. In 1993, he joined the Walt Disney studio in Montreuil, where he stayed for 9 years. At the same time, he performed advertising work for the city of Grenoble.

Towards the end of 2000, he proposed to Éditions Soleil a project focused on the adventures of a girl named Luuna. After a meeting with Didier Crisse, the main character underwent changes, which led to the creation of Nicolas Keramidas' first series for this publisher.

His work on Luuna, then on Tykko des sables, a total of 12 albums for Soleil, marks a significant part of his production. His style, characterized by a cartoonish approach, allows him to approach well-known characters such as Mickey's Wildest Adventures and Donald's Happiest Adventures, published by Glénat. In collaboration with Thebe, he returns again to Alice in Wonderland in Alice in Monkey Land, again by Glénat.

His career also includes collaborations with Lewis Trondheim on Superin in Dupuis and Joann Sfar on Commando Barbare in Glénat. Some of these works will be exhibited in the Momie Gallery.

The exhibition also includes a section devoted to a more personal aspect of Keramidas' work, with excerpts from Open Heart and Conqueror Hunter. His figurine collection stands out, as well as his interest in music, illustrated by his participation in the creation of album covers and T-shirts for Renaud.

The exhibition will be open until April 27, from Tuesday to Thursday from 14:00 to 19:00 and on Fridays and Saturdays from 10:00 to 13:00 and from 14:00 to 19:00. Exclusive promotional items will be available for sale and a drawing made on site can be won in a drawing.
