Frédéric Back

As Frédéric Back will be in Toronto later this week, where his artwork will be exhibited and his films screened, I thought it would be good to reprint this 20-year-old article from The Globe and Mail, written just before The Man Who Planted Trees won the Oscar for Best Animated Short.

You can read details about the exhibitions and screenings here.

I was fortunate to meet Mr. Back at the Marc Davis lecture at the Academy a couple of years ago. What a gentle man, a gentleman, and an artist. At the time he was still doing some illustration work, I believe with the help of his son. Just an all around great guy, and a credit to animation.
