Skwak is a french illustrator from North of France. Skwak creates a series of works that revisite the children fairy tales and many different universal myths. His unique graphic universe (Maniac World) is soaked, choking. The adventures his characters (the Maniacs) are living are inspired from our daily life such as: love stories, treason, manipulation... However, all of them can be seen as absurd and extremely exaggerated. Skwak likes to express such ideas through and elevated height of escalation, through power, wealth, plastic surgery, celebrity...etc
