Featured Artist of the Week: Marjane Satrapi

November 29, 2011

After a bit of a hiatus, I am determined to get Guildess back on track. I would like to start by featuring comic artist and filmmaker, Marjane Satrapi. Her film, Persepolis, is part of Guildess’ film series, About Women, By Women. The film will be shown at 10th Street Gallery/In Tandem Theatre on December 13 at 7pm.

Biography: Marjane Satrapi is an Iranian born French author, graphic novelist, director, and illustrator. As a child, she attended the Lycée Français in Tehran where her family was involved with communist and leftist political groups partly responsible for the 1979 Iranian Revolution. Her graphic novel, Persepolis, is a memoir of her childhood growing up during the Revolution, the subsequent Islamic regime that took control of Iran after the Revolution, and the Iran-Iraq War of the 1980’s.
