Olivier LEDROIT

201510/30

The French king of dark fantasy Olivier Ledroit will appear in Talk Live

Olivier Ledroit stands as the leader of the gothic, fairytale, and medieval fantasy movement that flourised in the early 1990’s.
Illustrated with delicate artistic touches, his work Wika : Rage of Oberon has been translated into Japanese, and has garnered attention from the gaming industry for the window it provides into his world.

Profile

Olivier LEDROIT
Olivier Ledroit launched his career as an illustrator after studying for 2 years at the Duperre School of Applied Arts in Paris. He created illustrations for a number of games, but coming into contact with Frech comic creator Froideval changed the course of his career. Chronicques de la Lune noire (Chronicles of the Black Moon), on which they collaborated, gathered an intense following and became a hit selling over 1 million copies. In 1997 he released the short work Ennemis mortels (Mortal Enemies) based on a novel by Philip K Dick. Dick’s body of works also served as the inspiration for La Porte écarlate (The Scarlet Door), published by Soleil. He then illustrated the 11-volume Requiem Chevalier Vampire (Vampire Knight Requiem), based on the original work by Pat Mills. The work became an opportunity for him to depict symbolic and surreal scenes of which he is extremely fond, and the motifs of bloodflow and spattered blood. All of Ledroit’s works are colored by himself, with a sense of weight and texture reminiscent of a mural. He is the most prominent of the numerous French artists debuting in the 1990’s who were influenced by the appeal of heroic fantasy and new Anglo-Saxon comics. He resides in Brittany.
