Ballon Bleu de Cartier in a Comic by Moebius
“Because Happiness is counted in minutes and boredom in centuries, the time on our watches is all we have left to keep everybody on the same page.” From Rouge Cartier
The Foundation Cartier pour l’art contemporain has decided to dedicate its new exhibition to the artist Moebius. It will run from October 12,2010 to March 13, 2011 in Paris and is entitled “Moebius-Trans-Forme”.
In 2007 when Ballon Bleu de Cartier was launched, Cartier made an unexpected proposition to the French comic artist Moebius: to create a comic strip inspired by the world of this new watch, the result was Azulera, a highly original story that is just waiting to be discovered.
The exhibition includes original sketchbooks, comic-strip novels, paintings and exclusive drawings, as well as an advanced showing of a 3D animated movie and a documentary about the artist.
The information and photos were taken from Rouge Cartier- October Issue, there you will also find a video.
Who is Moebius
Jean Henri Gaston Giraud (born May 8, 1938) is a French comics artist. Giraud has earned worldwide fame, not only under his own name but also under the pseudonym Moebius, and to a lesser extent Gir, the latter appearing mostly in the form of a boxed signature at the bottom of the artist’s paintings, for instance the volumes’ covers.
