Winshluss, de son vrai nom Vincent Paronnaud, est un auteur de bandes dessinées et un cinéaste français né à La Rochelle en 1970. Il a coréalisé deux longs-métrages avec Marjane Satrapi.

Biography

Il publie ses premières pages dans le fanzine Les aventures de Miguel en 1995. Spécialiste des ouvrages collectifs, Winshluss a fait attendre son premier album. Avec son engagement dans la revue Ferraille dont il a pris les rênes avec son ami Cizo, il s'impose comme un des acteurs majeurs de la bande dessinée indépendante francophone.

En 2007, il reçoit avec Marjane Satrapi le Prix du Jury du Festival de Cannes pour Persépolis qui gagne également deux Césars l'année suivante : ceux du meilleur premier film et de la meilleure adaptation. Le film a également été nommé aux Oscars 2008 dans la catégorie Meilleur film d'animation.

En 2008, il reçoit le Fauve d'or : prix du meilleur album au festival d'Angoulême pour Pinocchio, l'album est ensuite traduit en anglais.

Son travail s'est décliné sous la forme d'expositions personnelles ou collectives : Amour (espace GHP, Toulouse, 2008), Supermarché Ferraille (Albi 2001, Angoulême 2002), Musée Ferraille (Angoulême 2003, Marseille 2006). Enfin, le festival d'Angoulême, sous la présidence de Philippe Dupuy et Charles Berbérian, a invité Winshluss à organiser une grande exposition rétrospective pour son édition 2009.

En 2016, il reçoit la Pépite d’or 2016 du Salon du livre de jeunesse de Montreuil pour Dans la forêt sombre et mystérieuse, un album de bande dessinée pour la jeunesse qui, contrairement à la majorité de ses œuvres, finit bien, parce que son fils aime les histoires qui finissent bien.

As a young man, violinist Nasser Ali Khan (Mathieu Amalric) falls in love with Irâne (Golshifteh Farahani), the beautiful daughter of a wealthy shopkeeper. Her father forbids them to marry, convinced that an artist could never financially support his daughter.
