Biography  
Ted (Thierry Benoit) Benoit


During the eighties, Ted Benoît was a prominent representative of the École Pigalle scene. With the other artists of this movement, like François Avril, Petit-Roulet and Dupuy-Berbérian, he shared a taste for the classic clear line style - a style employed in his anti-hero playboy comics set in the fifties. Benoît followed courses in cinematographic techniques and went to work for television afterwards. In 1971, he joined the editorial team of Actuel, an alternative magazine in which he also published his first comics works. Upon meeting Nikita Mandryka in 1975, Benoît began a collaboration with the magazine L'Écho des Savanes. He made his album debut in 1979 with 'Hôpital', published by Les Humanoïdes Associés'.
