HATJE CANTZ

The World of Tim Burton

Text by Tim Burton, Jenny He, Patrick Blümel.

The World of Tim BurtonHis films are cult classics: Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, The Nightmare before Christmas, Alice in Wonderland. Less well known, but no less relevant, is the artwork that Tim Burton creates outside of Hollywood. His drawings and paintings, 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, comic books and B-movies, as well as gothic culture. This 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, with Big Eyes.
American director, producer, photographer, and author Tim Burton (born 1958) is known for his dark, gothic films about quirky outsiders, which have been nominated for and won several Academy Awards. They include Pee-Wee's Big Adventure (1985), Beetlejuice (1988), Batman (1989), Edward Scissorhands (1990), Batman Returns (1992), Ed Wood (1994), Sleepy Hollow (1999), Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Corpse Bride (both 2005), Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007), Alice in Wonderland, (2010) Frankenweenie (2012) and Big Eyes (2014). Burton has collaborated extensively with actors Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter.

The World of Tim Burton

The World of Tim Burton, Trick or Treat

"Growing up in Burbank, California, there was not much of a museum culture. Except for the Hollywood Wax Museum, I never visited one until I was a teenager: Instead, I occupied my time watching monster movies and television, drawing whatever came into my head, or playing in the local cemetery," filmmaker Tim Burton writes in Hatje Cantz's new overview of his visual artwork. "Later, when I did start frequenting museums, I was struck by how similar the vibe was to the cemetery. Both have a quiet, introspective, yet electrifying atmosphere: excitement, mystery, discovery, life and death—all in one place." Featured image is Untitled (Trick or Treat). (1980) continue to blog
