Drew Struzan, who was born in 1947, has been drawing and painting since he was a child. He worked his way through the Art Center College of Design in California, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree with great distinction and completing two years of graduate studies. For more than 25 years Struzan has worked at his craft.
Struzan’s paintings have delighted audiences around the world for a quarter century. Whether he paints album covers, advertising, collectibles, book covers, or his famous movie posters, his strong visual design, draftsmanship, good taste, and immediately recognizable style always produce a memorable and lasting piece of art.Anyone who has seen his work will remember his paintings for E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, Star Wars, the Indiana Jones series, the Back to the Future series, Police Academy, the Muppet movies, and Hook.
As an artist, lecturer, and teacher, Struzan is influencing a new generation of artists and collectors. Steven Spielberg says Struzan is his favorite movie artist. George Lucas collects Struzan’s work, calling him the only collectible artist since World War II, while the Boston Globe called him the greatest poster artist of our day.
