Wizards, Lizards ’n’ Broads: 50 Years of Bode Art
Mark & Vaughn Bodé. Angouleme 2017.
Adda gallery & Taxie gallery are pleased to announce “Wizards, Lizards N’ Broads: 50 Years of Bode Art” by Mark Bodé and Vaughn Bodé for the 44th edition of Festival International de la Bande Dessinée d’Angoulême (France) 2017, widely recognised as the biggest european comic event.
Son of VAUGHN BODÉ – important author of Comics book underground American of the Seventies with Gilbert Shelton and Robert Crumb – MARK BODÉ takes advantage of his invitation to the 44th Comics Festival in Angoulême to pay a fervent homage to the work of his father.
In this capacity, like his father, he produced a Cartoon Concert, as Vaughn had presented it himself at the 2nd Festival of Angoulême where he had also been invited in 1975 – a few months before his death.
And while a few years before his premature death in 75, VAUGHN went to Paris and met Moebius, Tardi and Druillet it is also here for MARK, an opportunity to reconnect with part of its history.
On 30 or so original drawings and plates by MARK, but also original drawings by VAUGHN, sculptures and personal souvenirs kept in secret, the exhibition focuses on the BODÉ style and the characters that made it famous .
Bubble Letters, Broad Bodé and Cheech Wizard, strongly inspired the emerging scene of New York Hip Hop and the precursors of graffiti. Dondi, Seen and Tracy 168 capture the style and make it one of the fundamental and emblematic elements of Spray Can Art.
When VAUGHN died, MARK faithfully resumed the paternal art and watched over his stylistic heritage.
Two limited and signed editions of MARK BODÉ will be produced for this exhibition.

Comics pour Graffiti
Première exposition parisienne de MARK BODÉ
Du 25 Octobre au 5 Novembre 2015
Fils de VAUGHN BODÉ – auteur important de Comics book underground américain des années 70 avec Gilbert Shelton et Robert Crumb – MARK BODÉ profite de son exposition parisienne pour rendre un fervent hommage à l’œuvre de son père. Et alors que quelques années avant sa mort prématurée en 75, VAUGHN se rend à Paris et y rencontre Moebius, Tardi et Druillet c’est aussi ici pour MARK, une occasion de renouer avec une partie de son histoire
Sur une trentaine de toiles de MARK, des plans de métro newyorkais peints inédits, mais aussi des dessins originaux de VAUGHN, des sculptures et des souvenirs personnels jusque là conservés au secret, l’exposition met l’accent sur le style BODÉ et les personnages qui ont fait sa renommé.
Bubble Letters, femmes Broad Bodé et Cheech Wizard, ont fortement inspiré la scène émergeante du Hip hop newyorkais et les artistes précurseurs du graffiti. Dondi, Seen ou encore Tracy 168 s’accaparent le style et en font un des éléments fondamental et emblématique du Spray Can Art.
A la mort de VAUGHN, MARK reprend fidèlement la plume paternelle et veille depuis sur son héritage stylistique.
Une édition limitée et signée de MARK BODÉ sera produite à l’occasion de cette exposition.
Et en avant première la présentation de son dernier livre « The Book of ME par Cheech Wizard”.
Exposition organisée en collaboration avec Taxie Gallery.
