Henriette Valium, whose real name is Patrick Henley, is a comic book artist and painter based in Montreal, Quebec. Valium gained substantial recognition from the underground comics scene in Europe and North America since his beginnings in the early eighties, although his provocative and hallucinogenic style has kept him well away from the mainstream comic book industry. Valium started by the mid- nineties to experiment more formally with collage, which moved his art toward a more abstract and horrific form, incorporating gruesome press photos. Among the interesting collages of that period, we find La Prison Anale des Freres Rouges. French text.
