Born in Liège, François Olislaeger graduated from the École d’arts graphiques Emil-Cohl in Lyon. He started working for the press in 2003, collaborating with newspapers such as Le Monde, Libération, Les Inrockuptibles, Beaux-Arts Magazine, before publishing graphic reports on current events. Working for the opera in Lyon and then for the Festival d’Avignon enabled him to gain insight into the world of contemporary theatre, which he explores in Carnets d’Avignon. With Actes Sud, he has written and drawn about Marcel Duchamp, Darwin, René Magritte, but he has also gained fame for Little P in Echoesland (Denoël Graphic) and Un autre monde est possible (Hachette) about the alter-globalisation movement.
