These previously unseen works included information about his training, his earliest humorous black and white drawings, the importance Folon attached to stroke, to line, the references to Steinberg, whose work he greatly admired, and the key moments of his career. They guided visitors through the fundamental concepts of his poetry and his graphic universe and revealed his method and the background to his works, how his sketches evolved into a design, poster, illustration, watercolour, etching, hybrid object or sculpture.

The exhibition invited visitors to accompany the artist, immerse themselves in his universe and experience his favourite themes: humour, characters and their metamorphoses, communication and the press, the isolation of the individual in the crowd and the disproportion between the individual and the city, the obsession with labyrinths and arrows, humankind’s place vis-a-vis the immensity of space, the head and the eye, repositories and instruments of the spirit and the imagination.

A catalogue produced to accompany this exceptional exhibition is still available for purchase in the Fondation Folon Artshop.
