Benjamin Flao was born in Nantes in 1975 in a gentle light.
Then comes the smells of school which give you a belly ache.
Then he discovers Franquin, Giraud and Pratt, and makes drawings to feel better.
When school is over, there’s freedom to rebel against everything including himself.
He paints on walls, takes walks, makes books, some kids, and more books.
Each time with the secret hope of going back to play with the ocean.
