From Paris to Putney: The Art of Gildas Chatal

Gildas Chatal grew up in Southern Brittany, France with a passion for drawing. He followed that passion to an art school in Paris and developed his skills to enter the world of graphic design. In the graphic tradition, ink line art was his focus, until he discovered acrylic paint. “The colors were so vivid, I couldn’t be shy with them.” The resulting illustrations have been published in a comic book magazine in Europe with writer David Boriau and a children’s book entitled “The Elephant in the Room” written by Jim Bombicino. After 19 years in this country, Gildas’ drawings have become a wonderful addition to the newsletter and general postings at the Putney CO-OP.
The works of Gildas Chatal will be on display at the Putney Public Library the months of April and May.
The library is open 10:30am – 6pm Monday – Friday, and 10am – 1pm Saturday.
Putney Library is located at 55 Main St. This art show, like all library programs, is free and open to the public.
