Biography

Tim Burton: The Artist’s Process

Installation view of exhibition entrance Tim Burton, May 29–October 31, 2011, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Photo © 2011 Museum Associates/LACMA IM BURTON WAS BORN IN BURBANK, CALIFORNIA, in 1958 and attended Burbank High School. After studying at the California Institute
of the Arts (CalArts), he worked as an animator at the Walt Disney Studios before breaking out on his own. Taking inspiration from popular culture, fairy tales, and gothic traditions, Burton has reinvented Hollywood genre filmmaking as an expression of a personal vision.

Burton is part of a distinguished tradition. Since the early Renaissance, drawings have been considered to be especially revealing of the artist’s individual genius and style. Prints, by extension, can distill the hand-drawn line to its essence and reproduce it for mass distribution.
