For more than fifty years now, Ernest Pignon Ernest has been placing his drawings in the streets of the cities of the world. The artist offers to the 'viewers' his works that seem to escape from the walls to gradually settle in our minds like icons, essential traces, prints of the times and places they have traversed.

Exhibition Catalogue Ernest Pignon-Ernest, presented at the Fonds Hélène & Édouard Leclerc pour la Culture, Landerneau (from 12 June 2022 to 15 January 2023).
It is the case too with Pasolini, Rimbaud and many other poet figures, and also with his interventions in challenging contexts that, in Haiti, in Soweto, in Algiers or Calais, for example, have become shared symbols of people's struggles and suffering.
Already well known, mindful of the state of the world, fired by his passion for art and poetry, at times considered a pioneer of urban art, Ernest Pignon Ernest is an exacting artist.
This book and the exhibition that generated it, documents the whole of his approach and gathers together more than three hundred works, sketches, drawings, nocturnal collages in sites carefully selected, photographs and the reactions of the residents, as well as original studies of his recent work on Victor Segalen, the poet from Brittany. Behind the shadow of a man beloved by the general public, we perceive a profound and resolutely humanist artist admired by today's greatest thinkers and poets.
For a long time kept away from major institutions, Ernest Pignon Ernest, a great artist, a poet among his peers, displays here the vast constellation of his inspirations.
