Drew Struzan

Drew Struzan has achieved a truly unprecedented place in the 100-year history of motion picture advertising. With nearly 40 years of experience in the Industry and literally hundreds of movie titles to his credit, George Lucas refers to Drew as "The only collectible artist since WWII." Screenwriter and Director, Frank Darabont says" The images Drew renders become part of that film's iconography and history, just as important in some respects as the film itself, and sometimes better." "What Drew does isn't really distilling the elements of a movie," says Guillermo del Toro, "It's almost alchemy. He takes images and makes them quintessentially cinematic. His style has been copied so many times in a bad way, people don't realize until they revisit his posters just how powerful the pure Struzan style is, how purely filmic it is."

After graduating with great distinction from the prestigious Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, Struzan created award-winning artwork for record album covers. But it was in his partnership in an L.A. design studio that launched his career in the movies. Beginning with B-Movie cult classics like "Killer Force," "Empire of the Ants," and "Food of the Gods," Struzan quickly became sought after for "A" list movies; including all the "Star Wars" films, "E.T.," all four "Indiana Jones" films, the "Muppet Movies," and the "Back to the Future" films, as well as "Harry Potter" and "Blade Runner," on and on. His work has been made available in Limited Edition Art Prints and distributed throughout the world. His work has been displayed in Japan to standing room only crowds, and was the first and only living artist to have a One Man Show at the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts.
