On Saturday, May 20, 2017, about fifteen children responded to Ericailcane’s invitation to give life to new imaginary creatures. On the walls of a room in the youth sector of the Pierre Bayle media library, the children were able to colour in coloured chalk and reveal the animals, guided by the benevolent outlines painted by the artist.

Like a Jean de la Fontaine muralist, the Italian artist creates animals with human postures, illustrating social facts or local problems with a touch of satyric humor. His imaginary world, at a time poetic and terrifying, offers several levels of reading, whether in his delicate engravings and drawings or in his sculptures and vast murals.
