Frédéric Back, internationally renowned film-animation artist, muralist, illustrator, and teacher (born at Sarrebrück, France 8 Apr 1924). Back studied Fine Art at Rennes, France, before immigrating to Canada in 1948. He was hired by Radio Canada in Montréal in 1952 and worked in graphics and visual effects on many educational and scientific television shows. In 1968 Back joined the newly created (by Hubert Tison) animation division, releasing his first film, Abracadabra, in 1970. Since then he has finished eight more short animated films, primarily for young children and usually with a message associated with ecology or Quebec culture. His films are known for his exquisite technique of drawing on frosted acetate with coloured pencils in a gentle post-Impressionist style.
