Paris / Beyrouth
Raphaëlle Macaron was born in Beirut, where she studied illustrations and comics. She is an active member of the collective Samandal, dedicated to promoting comics in Lebanon. Now based in Paris, Raphaëlle has collaborated with many organisations. She created portraits for Amnesty International, exhibited at the Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris and illustrated covers for magazines and newspapers such as the New York Times and Society.
In 2020, Raphaëlle released her first graphic novel Les Terrestres. Following a six-months coverage on a collapsology community in France with Noël Mamère, the artist highlights human beings’ mortality, and the socio-political impact of their way of lives.
Raphaëlle explores the history and current events of her birth country a lot in her work. Following the Beirut explosion in August 2020, she sold a series of posters to collect funds to help the city with the aftermath. In total, she raised 90,000€ for Impact Lebanon. Today, Raphaëlle is working on many different projects in her Parisian studio, including a graphic novel about Lebanon.
