Louis Netter talks about his work as part of the Falmouth School of Art Guest Speakers series. Louis Netter is a practising illustrator with over 15 years of experience. His satirical illustration has been published in magazines and books and his artwork is collected by the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Library of Congress amongst other collections in the US. Recently, a comic collaboration with Olly Gruner was published in the Corbyn Comic (Self Made Hero).
He is completing a PhD at the Royal College of Art in Reportage Drawing and exploring further practice based research on the aesthetics of drawing in virtual reality and developing ‘comic as research’ projects following the publication of Steal This History in the journal ‘Re Thinking History’, published by Taylor and Francis.
Other practice based research is exploring medical narratives in the comic, community outreach and lived experience through art making in Nairobi slums, and exploring the factors that impact violence against women in southeast Asia.
