In Saint-Victor-sur-Rhins Gregor Hinz takes us to the small community of the same name in the French Auvergne-Rhone-Alps region. In 2014, he spent two months in France helping children at various schools draw comics. His picture story is composed of a series of fragments painted with felt-tip pens, which tell of his travel impressions with a wink.
When Gregor Hinz draws, reality becomes tangible. Born in Rostock, the comic artist draws books for big and small children and is the co-founder of the magazine "Pure Fruit". Since 2011, he has been teaching at the Muthesius Academy of Art.
Small but nice: Saint-Victor-sur-Rhins is a village near Thizy. Around 2000 inhabitants live in the French commune. It belongs to the Loire department in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region. Saint Victor, however, can look back on a record: At the beginning of the twentieth century, there were three rail stations here.
David Schmidt about "Saint-Victor-sur-Rhins"
Five pages show five different scenes from this period, drawn in felt-tip pen. Viewed in isolation, the word-image collages seem like a loose chain of travel impressions..."
