The Artist: The Circle of Life
Written and illustrated by Anna Haifisch
Self-deprecating humour and a miserable sense of self-worth combine forces in this wickedly funny take on fine art and creativity.
Format: Hardcover, printed by offset lithography in Belgium
The Artist returns!
Haifisch’s idiosyncratic, episodic comic chronicles the experiences of a young artist in his formative years, satirising the exclusive, ephemeral and frequently absurd world of fine art.
Plagued by doubts and anxiety, the artist is confronted with constant setbacks punctuated by occasional, surprising glimpses of recognition.
Read if you: have ever felt proud of something you're creating till the day it's completed, and suddenly it looks like trash to you.
