23.08.1933 - 26.12.2008
François Solot , known as François Solo , born on 23 août 1933, died in Paris on 26 décembre 2008 , is a French caricaturist, cartoonist and comic strip author.
He collaborated with the reviews L’ Os à marrow , Plexus , Le Canard enchaîné (from 1972 to 1980), La Croix , Les Nouvelles littéraires , Liberation , L’Unité , Témoignage Chrétien , Révolution , Télé-Star , Pilote , etc.
From 1968 to 1971, he was editor-in-chief of the review Miroir du Fantastique .
In 1973, he received the Haga  trophy at the first comic book fair in Toulouse (where he would be a regular in subsequent editions).
He created with his partner Catherine Saint-Martin the bimonthly Caricature and caricaturists. He also wrote with her the Dico Solo, a dictionary listing caricaturists and press cartoonists, as well as media.
Supporter of the press drawing without text, he is very demanding in the treatment of the drawing. His caricatures, refined to the extreme, reduced to a game of geometric lines bordering on abstraction, while retaining an obvious resemblance, testify to a real mastery of this art. He disappeared in 2008 .
