Synopsis

Perhaps best known for his masterful Holocaust narratives Maus and Maus II – which in 1992 won a Pulitzer Prize–Art Spiegelman is one of the world's best known and beloved comic artists. Born in Stockholm in 1948, Spiegelman rejected his parents’ aspirations for him to become a dentist, and began to study cartooning in high school and drawing professionally at age 16. He went on to study art and philosophy at Harpur College before joining the underground comics movement. As creative consultant for Topps Candy from 1965-1987, Spiegelman designed Wacky Packages, Garbage Pail Kids and other novelty items, and taught history and aesthetics of comics at the School for Visual Arts in New York from 1979-1986. In 1980, Spiegelman founded RAW , the acclaimed avant-garde comics magazine, with his wife, Françoise Mouly. His work has since been published in many periodicals, including The New Yorker , where he was a staff artist and writer from 1993-2003. He has since published a children’s book entitled Open Me… I’m A Dog , as well as the illustration accompaniment to the 1928 book The Wild Party , by Joseph Moncure March. Spiegelman is the author, most recently, of In the Shadow of No Towers . He is the recipient of a Guggenheim fellowship, and, in addition to the winning the Pulitzer Prize, Maus was nominated for a National Book Critics' Circle Award. His drawings and prints have been widely exhibited here and abroad. He lives in New York City with his wife and their two children.
