Brito Exhibition at the European Cartoon Center

From the ECC website.

Carlos Brito was born in Lisbon in 1943 and moved in 1963 to Paris for political reasons. He studied sociology and followed no artistic training.

His career from 1957 to 1979 can best be described as '12 trades and 13 accidents', with all sorts of jobs in Germany, France and Portugal.

In 1970 his first cartoon was published in Rouge. He worked for several Portuguese newspapers and magazines and since 1980 he has been press cartoonist in France.

He drew among others for Le Monde and Le Canard Enchaîné. Cartoons who, for whatever reason, were not published were given a place on his blog. Even after his retirement Brito remains very active in the cartoon world.

He has exhibited in many European countries, and also in Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Cuba, Japan ... and was a jury member in such cartoon competitions as Greekartoon, World Press Cartoon, Don Quichotte, Piracicaba, Niels Bugge, Bienal Internacional de Humorismo Grafico Cuba ... 

In 2004 he received the "Grand Prix de l'Humour Vache" in Saint-Just-le-Martel.

He has published several books as Brito Non Conforme, Brito Édition SpécialeNON de dieux... 

He is currently vice president of FECO (Federation or Cartoonists Organizations).
