Smurf Attack

26 Mar

by Dimitria Ioannidou//

This blog is becoming more and more art friendly, no? Its comics turn today, the most literary of the plastic arts, the outcome of the ever closer collusion between the desire to tell stories and the art of drawing. Plus, the comic festival is about to open its doors in Athens, plus Milo Manara will be there (and so are we), plus there is the Comic Strips museum in Brussels that I visited just for you. So especially dedicated to all us children out there…

Concluding in the museum’s own wors: Comic strip is not the result of a discovery. From the oldest known accounts of cave art to the dawn of the 20th century, the various elements of this exhibition confirm the popular adage that “nothing is invented, everything just changes”.
