For years, Patrick Chappatte has commented on events inside and outside Switzerland. His work is published in Swiss and international media including the International Herald Tribune, Le Temps and the Neue Zürcher Zeitung am Sonntag.
Even in his most acerbic caricatures, Chappatte displays sensitivity: he pointedly brings out people’s characteristics without ever ridiculing them. Born in Pakistan to a Swiss father and Lebanese mother, his trademarks are situations, conflicts or contradictions – he never takes direct aim at people. A book has been published with 100 selected cartoons.
