Prince Rogers Nelson aka Prince was a complete artist, all at once author, composer, performer, multi-instrumentalist and producer. A real showman on stage, songs like “ 1999” or “ Purple Rain,” made him an international star. With his tormented life, sulfurous relationships, sex and drugs, he was above all a genius artist with a very distinctive original style who sold more than 80 million records around the world.
Here is his extraordinary destiny in a mix of colorfully illustrated articles and comics!
Nicolas Finet, author, publisher, filmmaker, journalist, curator, speaker, translator, has worked in comics for more than three decades. He is the author of more than half a dozen reference works on it. In music, he is the writer on NBM's recent bio of Janis Joplin Love Me Please and he has just made a documentary on the blues and comics, Mississippi Ramblin, devoted to bluesman Robert Johnson. He is also the writer of the graphic novel Forever Woodstock. Born in Paris in 1976, Tony Lourenço alias Nyt has been exploring and expressing his artistic sensibility for a long time. He did this first through singing and piano at the Paris International Conservatory of Music, then, seduced by imagery, he created a photo studio in a Parisian barge. At the same time, he paints and writes short stories, scenarios, tales and travelogues.
