Bill Sienkiewicz painting; illustration; undated; 11" x 17"

A prime example from the revolutionary artist. Sienkiewicz produced cover paintings and character designs of the New Mutants from 1984 to 1985. From this period on, Sienkiewicz’s art evolved into a much more expressionistic style as he began experimenting with paint, collage and mixed media. Legion is the mutant son of Charles Xavier (Professor X). He was created by writer Chris Claremont and artist Bill Sienkiewicz and made his debut in New Mutants #25 (March 1985). Executed in pen, ink and watercolors on paper. Art is in fine condition. Signed by Sienkiewicz in the lower right center.

Illustrator known for his impressionistic and groundbreaking abstract style, most closely associated with Moon Knight and The New Mutants, Sienkiewicz is a standout artist in comics, employing different mediums for his art than the common comics book pencil and ink. He helped breathe an individual personality into Moon Knight who was previously regarded as Batman in white clothing. His work on Frank Miller's Elektra: Assassin is one of the peak achievements in 80's comics, Bill has worked in other fields besides comics, including album covers and Magic: The Gathering cards to name a few. Considered one of the great artists to rise out of the Bronze Age.
