"Chinatown" New York,NY,2014
Text — Chinatown — 2014 —
In this series, Franck Bohbot takes an offbeat approach to the typical Manhattan Chinatown cliché: daytime noise, incessant deliveries, hasty people, and countless tourists are replaced with deserted nocturnal streets, science fiction-like cinematographic sets, and the occasional UFO-like passerby seemingly dropped on a motionless urban site in which silence reigns. The result is an enigmatic voyage through a pictorial and fantasy-like universe in the thick of night, with the New York City backdrop as its sole main protagonist.
Dans cette série, Franck Bohbot a pris le contre pied du cliché du “Chinatown” animé.
Ici pas de bruits, pas de livraisons, ni de rues animées, et de touristes. Le silence est roi.
A mi-chemin entre poésie et décors cinématographiques de science fiction, il a réalisé une série de photographies nocturnes du quartier, vidé de son activité, de ses habitants, avec comme décor le ville de New York.
Il en découle un voyage énigmatique, créant un univers pictural et quasi fantastique en pleine nuit.

A sneak peek of a short comic that I created for the Fly the Colour Fantastica anthology, an all-Australian, all-female comic project.
My story is about a boy who finds a river mermaid. She’s more adventurous than Ariel, so she tags along with him despite having no legs. I was very influenced by the art of Calvin & Hobbes, and also by concepts from FLCL and Chris Riddell’s illustration.
(Hello to new followers! Thank you very much for following and apologies in advance if I’m slow to post art.)
