The World of Tim Burton
His films are cult: whether Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, The Nightmare before Christmas, or Alice in Wonderland. Less well known, but no less relevant, is the artistic work that Tim Burton (*1958 in Burbank, California) creates outside of Hollywood. His drawings and paintings, his poems and short stories delight his fans just as much as his adventures on the silver screen. In the spirit of Surrealism, Burton playfully blends elements from popular culture, cartoons and comic books, B-movies, as well as gothic culture. The catalogue affords fascinating insight into the bizarre, magical imagination of this exceptional multimedia artist. And like the title of his new film, these pictures leave the viewer in amazement, inspired, and with Big Eyes.
