Gallery Napoleon, a specialist on comic books

BESSE Xavier

Graduate of the Ecole du Louvre and of a Master in Art & Archeology from London University, Xavier Besse first took the path of sinology in the China department of the Guimet Museum in Paris.

A few years later, caught up in a tenacious need to draw and nourished wonders of Asian art, he began as an illustrator with youth albums published by the Réunion des Musées Nationaux. After a few decisive encounters with writers, such as Jean-David Morvan and Olivier Supiot, he now devotes himself mainly to Comics. A great challenge, brilliantly tackled by this talented draftsman who has a sense of detail and an eye for framing.

His admiration for the Asian arts led him to sign Laowaï in 2017, a series of historical adventure, well documented that plunges us into nineteenth century China.
