A clever, quirky read-aloud biography of a leading modern artist, for kids
Artist Yves Klein always thought about how he could surprise his audience. One day, he decided that he would only paint in one colour - blue. He painted canvases, globes, branches, gallery floors, and even covered people in blue paint. Klein's story is told here with wit and eccentricity, perfectly paired with black-line illustrations and blue
splashes galore. Fausto Gilberti brings movement, life, and whimsy to the true life story of one of the most important modern French artists of our time.
Fausto Gilberti is a painter and illustrator based in Brescia, Italy. He studied at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera in Milan and has been part of more than a hundred solo and group exhibitions, both in Italy and abroad. He wrote this book to make contemporary art approachable and enjoyable for his two children.
