Eric Bourdon is a man with no story to tell, and a sketch artist without technique.
Every day (like every painting) is a new beginning !
For him, improvisation is the only rule of the game, it is at the heart of artistic activity.
Bringing out colorful emotions and folkloric characters from a few lines drawn “without thinking”, is to cultivate graphic creativity at its most basic level.
Scribbler by profession, Eric Bourdon only tries to shed light on the creative wealth of chance and accident, and to reveal their inexhaustible potential when it comes to creating a myriad of creatures… that we would have never thought of !
Secours populaire ?
Born in 1945, Secours populaire is a non-profit making association declared to be a great National cause. It is authorised to receive gifts, legacies and donations. The aim of the association is to fight against poverty and exclusion in France and throughout the World. It brings together people of all views, circumstances and origins who wish to live in solidarity.
The SPF [ Secours Populaire Français ] is particularly concerned with problems of exclusion.
In the short term, through emergency aid based on food, and clothing. Emergency housing and referral to a support structure also remain at the heart of the concerns of Secours populaire.
The SPF also supports individuals and families over the long term in their rights and lives, through access to housing, health, holidays, culture and leisure, sport and professional integration… Whether an emergency or not, the respect and dignity of persons assisted is vital for the association.
