Born in 1974 in Geneva, Frederik Peeters developed a passionate relationship with drawing at a very young age, thanks in part to his (repeated!) reading of Hergé’s comics. Today, Frederik Peeters is considered one of the most talented and influential authors of his generation. He has published a large body of work ranging from autobiography (Blue Pills, Oleg) to science fiction (Lupus, Aâma), from detective stories (RG) to westerns (The Smell of Starving Boys), from drama (Pachyderm) to the ‘unclassifiable’ (Saccage). A multi-awarded author (Angoulême Festival, Töpffer Prize), his works are now published in many countries such as Spain, Brazil, the United States, Italy, Russia, Poland, Germany, and others. In July 2021, Old, directed by M. Night Shyamalan and based on Peeters’ comic strip Château de sable (on a screenplay by Pierre Oscar Lévy), was released.
