“Ukrainian Notebooks. Diary of an Invasion” by Igort

La traditional exhibition of comics, which follows a line begun many years ago and has brought to Auditorium Parco della Musica Ennio Morricone the works of authors and artists such as Altan, Zerocalcare, Makkox, Ellekappa, Mauro Biani and Gianluca Costantini, this year will be dedicated to Ukraine through the drawings of Igort. "Ukrainian Notebooks. Diary of an Invasion" is the title of his latest book and exhibition - curated by Rosa Polacco, in collaboration with Oblomov Editions-which we drew from it: a text that reminds us, as the author writes, that "A war is always and only a dirty war. There is no epic, no glory, only misery."

Igort, stage name of Igor Tuveri, is multifaceted personality of artist. A prolific author of award-winning graphic novels, filmmaker, illustrator and editor, he is also the author of short stories, novels and music. He was the first Westerner to draw manga in Japan and has been published in all the most prestigious Italian and international magazines. Nurtured by long stays in Japan and the countries of the former Soviet Union, he has matured an expressive style that combines the peculiarities of the graphic novel, of which he is an acknowledged master, and graphic journalism, becoming one of the most original voices on the international art scene.
