This beautiful limited edition signed print on Velin Arches paper was originally painted for a Portfolio with a short story written by Pierre Christin (Le Dernier Train Supplémentaire
) and published by Alain Beaulet in 1984.
Mézières, co-creator of the seminal Valérian with Pierre Christin, influenced the likes of George Lucas's Star Wars and went on to become conceptual designer for films including The 5th Element.
Mézières takes us on a trip to an extra terrestrial space station filled with aliens for his brilliant vision of space travel.
This Mézièrs piece was, intriguingly, used for a France rail (SNCF) advertising campaign.
This incredibly rare and sought after print from the early 1980s is signed and hand numbered 287/370.
