Lorenzo Mattotti will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award of the “Max und Moritz”-Prize in the course of the 15th Erlangen International Comic Salon 2012. As is the case with many artists, his work has a painterly and a graphic side. The compression of his linework in critical situations has been a hallmark of his graphic work since “Stigmata”. The nightmarish dream fantasy “Schimäre” (“Chimera”) was the first highlight of this style. This technique was pushed further for the illustrations to the dark fairy tale “Hänsel und Gretel”. The ink brushstrokes have become wider; the color black dominates the pages; white, the color of light, hardly stands a chance and is torn up by the lines. This creates a shadow world that is appropriate for the Grimm brothers’ story of hostility to children and cannibalism.
