Legend of the graphzine and the graphzone, Y5/P5 draws zombies, skeletons, ghost trains, nightmare memories, rubber spiders in the subways at night. This 208-page book gathers his famous drawings on coasters, which he often made for a beer or a few cigarettes.
Considered as one of the great underground and "outsider
" drawing artists
, a major figure of the punk and anarchist graphzine scene, Y5/P5 (Frédéric Renault, born 1961) collaborated with the Bazooka
collective but never belonged to any group. He produced himself many graphzines (Press-Book
, Jim Bones
), participated in many others (Au Sec'
, Chacal Puant
, Hopital Brut
, etc.)and even had the honor of the cover in the US magazine Raw Vision
. He also produced many illustrations on coasters, much sought-after by fans of counter-culture drawings but difficult to find.
