Exem needs no introduction. He is a comic book artist, an illustrator and, of course, a poster artist: he works mainly for a Geneva-based clientele and is a gallery owner in Carouge. He will talk about his posters and those of other artists created for the most popular festival in Geneva: the Escalade, whether for the Race, the Festival or the balls.
Exem was born in Geneva in 1951. In 1982, he started drawing as a self-taught artist. He runs the Séries Rares gallery in Carouge.
