Mr. Zuper is a “Frenchie” superhero, strong, handsome and intelligent—at least, he thinks so! But in his daily life he faces some serious existential questions: he’s only 4 inches tall and he doesn’t have any superpowers, or friends! To overcome his dull existence, Mr. Zuper embraces creativity to lead a life filled with extraordinary adventures.
Through Mr. Zuper, Sylvain Granjon evokes our common desire to become someone else, to leave behind the beaten path for a better life. This new series is about childhood, time and nostalgia, which he expresses through colors: the present appears in color while the past is in black-and-white.
After a distinguished career as an actor and acrobat, Granjon has spent the past few years pursuing his second passion: photography. His art focuses on two things: creative immersion in an imaginary world, and the idea of relationship to time and childhood. He works in the traditional way, using film, collage, cut-outs and hand-coloring. Since 2012 he has been represented by the Galeria Tagomago.
