Bill Sienkiewicz (pronounced sin-KEV-itch) is an Eisner-winning, Emmy-nominated artist best known for revolutionizing the way comic books are drawn and made. His work has graced the National Museum of Fine Arts in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; art galleries in Paris, Barcelona, and Tuscany; and advertising campaigns for Nike, MTV, Nissan, the 2006 Winter Olympics, and dozens of Hollywood movies.
Sienkiewicz is a classically trained painter whose artworks incorporate abstract and expressionist influences and combine oil painting, acrylics, watercolor, mixed media, collage, and mimeograph. Bill Sienkiewicz: Revolution is the first time the artist’s work and career have been taken out of the limited context of comic books and evaluated as fine art. This signed and numbered edition of only 1,000 copies includes deluxe reproductions of 40 previously unpublished paintings, drawings, sketches, and mixed media works from Sienkiewicz’s notebooks and personal collection as well as other private collections. A booklet signed by the artist will include a text explaining his influences and techniques and offer his view on the future of comic book art.
BS:R is the first of three volumes in three years, with each volume consisting of a trade and a limited edition.
