Brooklyn-based illustrator, painter, designer and part-time musician Gary Panter is the mind behind the elaborate, quirky, Emmy Award winning set designs for the kid’s TV show Pee Wee’s Playhouse. Possibly the most influential graphic artist of his generation, Panter’s creative influence extends far beyond the realms of illustration. His work has been described as era-defining, earning him the monikers “King of Punk Art” and “King of the Preposterous.”
PLEASE NOTE: The Beguiling will not be able to do book sales at this event, so if you’re hoping to get a work signed please drop by the store first to purchase Gary Panter’s books or prints.
