Val Biro

(b.1921)

An artist who has worked in an astonishing range of media in his life as a commercial artist.
He is perhaps most well-known in recent years for his own illustrated stories of Gumdrop - his vintage car.
Those who recognise his cartoon style with light, so real, backdrops will be surprised perhaps to see other examples of his work for Radio Times for example where his magnificent fully detailed covers are as exquisite engravings.
