Art Academy Budapest

Born as André Farkas in Timisoara (Ungary, later Rumania), André François attended the Art Academy in Budapest
before moving to Paris where he became pupil of the famous poster artist Cassandre. He became French
citizen in 1939 and settled with his British wife and his two children in the country, near Paris. In 1949 he began a long collaboration with Punch, Lilliput and shortly after that with Graphis in Szwitzerland. André François was one of
the most successful graphic artists of his time.

In 2002 André François’ studio burned to the ground in the night of December 7th to 8th. His lifework was almost
completely destroyed (actually the only pieces that escaped destruction were the works in private collections
and at Bartsch & Chariau.
