Usually, I prefer people to their environment…” The sketchbooks that Titouan Lamazou takes home from five countries marked by vastly contrasting styles, are woven with encounters: felucca sailors and Naguib Mahfouz, Egyptian winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature; Jorge, a mechanic-trapeze artist in Cuba; a violinist and a monk from Amorgos in Greece; the great artist Romuald Hazoumé in Benin; Arimura Sen, a comic-book illustrator in Japan…

Scenes from everyday life, portraits, materials, unusual objects, original compositions… the work of this nomad artist wins us over with its poise and honesty, and demonstrates his insatiable curiosity. Surprising for the wealth and diversity of its illustrations, this album also offers us, with humor and poetry, the reflections that travel inspires this atypical man: an artist for sailors, a sailor for artists.
