Event Details

Birthday: 05.01.1968

Birthplace: Paris

I draw at night. In the billet. Whenever my comrades thought that my small lamp, which stood by my bedside, was bothering them, they threw their boots at me.” Inga Sempé’s father Jean-Jacques was a gifted cartoonist. However, life as an artist was tough – especially during his military duty in Paris, from where this quote is from. Her mother Mette Ivers-Sempé was a painter and illustrator. With this background is hardly a surprise that Inga Sampé always stars her creative process with drawings, which are then transformed into a paper model. Therefore, pencils, scissors, paper and glue are never missing from her studio.
