VINCENT SARDON is a radically independent artist in Paris who makes and sells his work in a little shop and studio near the Père Lachaise cemetery in the eleventh arrondissment. He began his career as political cartoonist for the left-wing Libération then, disillusioned, he set out on his own to make rubber stamps, of which he?s now made hundreds. He has an ardent cult following in France following the illustrious comic book press L?Association publication of Le Tampographe, a four-year journal narrating his artistic life and work, which is now in its third printing.
excerpt from THE STAMPOGRAPHERBy Vincent Sardon
The Stampographer traverses the fantastic, anarchic imagination of Parisian artist Vincent Sardon, whose dark, combative sense of humor is infused with Dadaist subversion and Pataphysical play.
