Expo Stan MANOUKIAN à la galerie Glénat

Monsters Inc

-He Stan, I’m bored, what could we do?

-Oh ! and if we drew a monster a day for 1 year?

There are ideas like that, we do not know where they come from or where they will lead us …

From 2007, Stan MANOUKIAN decides to challenge himself: to draw a monster a day for a year. And he stood there! He has even gone further since his project lasted 3 years, transforming the idea into a real artistic enterprise.

His monsters have become more numerous and more and more massive, producing works of considerable size!

This is a part of this abundant collection that the Glénat gallery invites you to discover at the “Seasons” exhibition and few from his new book “Zoologia : le bestiaire fantastique”.

Articulating his compositions around his creatures, Stan gives us to see extremely rich and detailed scenes where small and big critters rub shoulders with abundant nature.

His favorites tools is pencil, ink or graphite, and he patiently contrasts his drawings with hatching and delicate frames.

Recalling sometimes the 19th century engraving, these small thousands of small features overlap, intersect, side by side to give life to a magical fauna. Always benevolent, the monsters of Stan do not give nightmares, but we would rather dream …

Exhibition until June 4th at the
galerie Glénat.

Otherwise, you can follow Stan MANOUKIAN on his instagram or go on his online store


Pierre Melier

Enfant des années 80, Pierre a été biberonné au club Dorothée, aux jeux- vidéos et aux super-héros. Ce trop-plein de pop culture à créé en lui une légère inadaptation sociale. Mais il s’en fout, dans son repaire secret, sur un fauteuil en cuir en caressant son chat, il attend patiemment le moment où les geeks gouverneront le monde... Sinon il dessine la plupart du temps, et cours derrière ses potes avec son dermographe pour leur tatouer un truc sur la fesse...
