The legendary comic book artist Bill 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, Vol. I, the first of a planned three-volume series, represents the first time the artist’s work and career have been taken out of the context of comic books and evaluated as fine art.
With an introduction by Neil Gaiman, who collaborated with Sienkiewicz on the New York Times-bestselling The Sandman, and edited by Sal Abbinanti, the artist's representative and colleague for over a decade, the Trade Edition offers a wide retrospective of the artist's work, combining sketches and studies from his private notebooks with never-before-seen images from his groundbreaking work on Stray Toasters, New Mutants, Daredevil, and more.
Bill Sienkiewicz: Revolution, Vol. I (Trade Edition) also features an interview in which the artist explains his influences and techniques and offers his view on the future of comic book art, and an essay by Ben Davis, award-winning Senior Writer for Artnet News, considering Sienkiewicz’s process and placing him within the context of art and popular culture.
