Directorial work of the amazingly talented, visionary Tim Burton is known to most movie-goers. Who hasn't at least heard of (if not seen a dozen times) Sleepy Hollow, Edward Scissorhands, Batman Returns, Planet of the apes, Beetlejuice, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Corpse Bride or Alice in Wonderland? But have you also seen Tim Burton's artwork?
Lafayette Arts and Design Center is hosting a fantastic exhibition of Tim Burton's work, including out-of-this-world models, movie props and original paintings, promising visitors 'the experience of walking directly into the comedic and ironic, dark yet fantastic world of the genius director.'
If you're keen on art that is perhaps a bit strange, weird, but insanely imaginative and simply wonderful, this could be something right up your alley. Visitors and fans of Burton are able to browse through over 500 drawings, paintings, photographs, and sculptures.
Included is also the now famous 'napkin art' - sketches he drew on napkins. These were collected in a book, called "THE NAPKIN ART OF TIM BURTON : things you think about in a bar."
Exhibition of director Tim Burton's artwork was first seen seven years ago, when it was launched in New York. It has since been touring all over the world.
"The World of Tim Burton" is open from Sunday, June 26, 2016 to Monday, October 10, 2016.
Tim Burton is also returning to the big screen this year with what appears to be an absolutely dreamy adaptation of the debut novel by American author Ransom Riggs - Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. See the movie trailer below.
