From Wikipedia:

Frédéric Boilet's debut in comic art was in 1983 with La Nuit des Archées.

He created Le Rayon vert in 1987, followed by 36 15 Alexia in 1990, two albums where he experimented with a method of working, that is still uniquely his today, in which he resorts almost exclusively to photographs and video.

His encounter with Benoît Peeters in 1990 turned his work toward semi-autobiographical stories tinged with humour : Love Hotel (1993), Tôkyô est mon jardin (1997) and Demi-tour (1997).

Today, Frédéric Boilet lives in Japan where Tôkyô est mon jardin was translated in 1998 and Demi-tour the following year. He started doing work for manga magazines in the late nineties, and is a rare example of a western comics artist having some degree of success in the Japanese market.

In 2001, on the occasion of the simultaneous publication in France and Japan of the critically-acclaimed Yukiko's Spinach, he launched the Nouvelle Manga movement in Tokyo, which seeks to combine mature sophisticated daily life manga with the artistic style of traditional Franco-Belgian comics.

His latest album Mariko Parade, a collaboration with the manga artist Kan Takahama, was published in France and Japan in 2003.
