Franco Égalité is an illustrator and artist who lives and works in Montreal, Canada. Raised by his single mother, he learned to hold a pen and draw a line before walking on his own two feet. He now knows how and how not to walk, and yet he has not stopped drawing his line. Franco E.’s sensual and captivating drawings take us into a world where the body plays and exposes itself freely. Although he claims to be influenced by human experience, sunlight, cubism and the aesthetic concept of Japanese Ma, he presents a vibrant and colourful graphic universe that takes on unique connotations. In each piece, the movements of his forms take on elegance and strength, creatively reworking the idea of minimalism.
