Enki Bilal was born in 1951 in Belgrade, the capital of Yugoslavia, and moved to Paris 9 years later. At age 14 he met René Goscinny (writer of Astérix) and famous French comix scripter Jean-Michel Charlier, who praised his drawings and encouraged him to try comics. His first story, the utopian "Le Bol Maudit", was published 1972 in Pilote.

In 1975 he started a long-running collaboration with Pierre Christin with La Croisière de les Oubliés. The following year the pair produced Le Vaisseau de Pierre, followed by La Ville qui n'Existait pas, Les Phalanges de l'Ordre Noir, Exterminateur 17, and Partie de Chasse, a story examining the moral effect of Communism and its collapse. Cœur Sanglant et Autres Faits Divers appeared in 1988.

In 1980 Bilal began his Nikopol Trilogy with La Foire aux Immortels, the first story which he both wrote and drew. It was very successful in France and Bilal was acclaimed one of the most interesting contemporary authors. The sequel, La Femme Piège, appeared in 1986 and the series concluded in 1992 with Froid Equateur. A new story, Le Sommeil du Monstre, appeared in 1999.

In 1983 Bilal created designs for the film, La Vie est un Novel, directed by French director and comix aficionado Alain Resnais. In 1989 Bilal himself directed the filming of his story La Foire aux immortels. He has also worked on the films Bunker Palace Hôtel and Tykho Moon.

Enki Bilal has illustrated many other series and book covers.

December 27th 2005, 4:00 AM Enki Bilal was born in Belgrade, Serbian capital. In the time he was born, it was the capital of Yugoslavia, but also the capital of Republic Serbia within Yugoslavia. The "Yugoslavia" part is to be noted, but I insist in adding "Belgrade, Serbia", too. Yugoslavia doesn't exist anymore, but both Belgrade and Serbia Bilal was born in do. In this time of our efforts to represent both our nation and our state in a new, different and positive light, I added that minor, but significant change in the sentence of Enki Bilal's birth. -Dragan.

Latest Publication[edit]

We should avoid the use of 'latest'. The paragraph about the latest publication being 32 Décembre and him working on Rendez-vous à Paris is no longer true. 'Latest' will always become outdated.
I think it's better to just drop this paragraph, but want to hear other users' thoughts first. Ninja neko 15:17, 14 June 2006 (UTC)

WARNING: Political propaganda at work[edit]

This becomes pathetic. Someone is trying to present this French artist as "Bosnian-French" (sic!) by removing the reference that he was born in Serbia, and by inventing stuff about the nationality of his parents. Adding 'Serbia' to his birthplace and removing the ridiculous 'Bosnian-French actor' remark, as well as the remark about the 'nationality' of his parents. The art is not the ground for political and low-level nationalistic propaganda. Marechiel 08:31, 7 July 2006 (UTC)
