Brea a visual journey

May 26, 2018 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

The Manual of Violence project, an investigation into the history and narrativization of violence, has stretched several years and a dozen workshops, couple of games, countless classrooms programs, and a full-length comic book teaching manual (in progress) based on the author’s ongoing conversations about violence with young children.

Brea is the first fictional installment in this series: an abstract illustrated story of two canny kids grappling with a magical and terrible heaviness around them in the wake of their school’s closure.

Carlos Matallana will share his visual journey, vivid memories when he was in elementary school, his first encounter with foreign magazines while growing up in Bogotá, his classic painting training and how all this contributed to his current style and now publish his first comic book.
