The Creatively Twisted Mind of Tim Burton

Tim Burton is a creative genius. One of America’s most unique cinematic artists, Burton consistently amazes with his limitless imagination and creative ability.

His earlier films like Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure (1985), Beetlejuice (1988) and Edward Scissorhands (1990), offered a peek into the beginnings of his unique and often bizarre perception of the world. In more recent years, we saw dramatic visuals from Burton’s experimentation with animation, special effects and gothic influences from Nightmare Before Christmas (1993), Corpse Bride (2005) and Alice in Wonderland (2010).

Regardless of his techniques and influences, Burton manages to draw his audience in with jaw dropping visuals and captivating storylines.

As on ode to Burton’s full range of creative prowess in film, illustration, photography and writing, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art will be hosting a retrospective showcasing a plethora of his work till October 31, 2011.

Over 700 pieces are displayed. Art dating back from adolescence including film, drawings, paintings, storyboards, costumes, puppets and sketchbooks generated during the conception and production of his films and even from unrealized projects will be available for viewing.

If you can’t make it to the exhibit, pick up a copy of ‘The Art of Tim Burton’ ($19.95) to learn about his creative processes and view his various art projects.

Address: 5905 Wilshire Blvd; Los Angeles, CA 90036
