Artist and draftsman, André Dahmer he had great growth in the universe of comics in the last decade and was one of the first to take advantage of the internet to publicize his work. He appropriated the language, techniques and culture of the network in order to subvert them with fine irony, acidity and an infinite capacity to take advantage of a known discourse and observe it from unusual and revealing angles. It was the case of the strip Wicked, whose characters, Malvadão and Malvadinho, took the screens of tablets and cell phones. The next step was to gain space in the newspapers. Since then, several characters and success stories were born, such as Comics of the 10, Apostles, the Series and The Life and Work of Terêncio Horto. The artist will be at Artists’ Alley every day and will participate in other activities announced soon.
