36 Spicy Salon Girls by Yannick Corboz

7 min

Outstanding watercolourist, Yannick Corboz (1976) pays homage to the voluptuous women he represents in languid poses when they are not twirling in a lascivious movement. We can easily imagine them poisonous, these felines with flamboyant hair and smoldering eyes. The undone laces of their corsets and the vaporous veils of their light clothing seem to merge with wisps of smoke.

Cloud of Perfume

As with Alphonse Mucha, Toulouse-Lautrec or Egon Schiele, the women of Corboz keep within them that part of mystery which makes them elusive. They seem to have lived a thousand lives and if the artist had not put them down on paper, you would think they were ready to evaporate in a cloud of perfume. Like a pictorial echo of Baudelaire 's Fleurs du Mal, which marked him, Yannick Corboz plunges us into an end-of-the-century atmosphere, sometimes tinged with orientalism.

Woody Allen 

Born in Annecy in 1976, Yannick Corboz graduated in 1999 from the school of applied arts at Émile Cohl in Lyon, where he learned animation, illustration and comics. He then became an illustrator/animator for video game companies (Ubisoft, Infogrames). In 2002, he met screenwriter Nicolas Pothier (Ratafia, Junk) with whom he published a few stories in  Bodoï  and  Métal Hurlant magazines , then a first  BD Ciné album, Woody Allen,  was released in 2004 by Nocturne editions.

Voies Off

Still with Nicolas Pothier, he published  Voies Off in 2006 with Treize Étrange editions. He meets Wilfrid Lupano with whom he creates the diptych Célestin Gobe-la-Lune published by Delcourt. In 2009, a second  BD Ciné opus, Woody Allen (from a screenplay by Nicolas Pothier) was released by BD Music. He also works as a freelance illustrator (communication, video games…) and exhibits his drawings and paintings in France and abroad. He also directed L’Assassin qu’elle mérite et Brigade Verhoeven adapted from the novels of Pierre Lemaître.
