If you’ve ever enjoyed a graphic novel, you probably have the Maus author and RAW magazine founder to thank. Here, Spiegelman discusses the pandemic and looks back on his revolutionary career arc, from MAD magazine to the modern day.
Art Spiegelman has been a staff artist and contributing editor at the New Yorker, as well as the cofounder/coeditor of RAW, the acclaimed magazine of avant-garde comics and graphics. In addition to Maus - which was awarded the Pulitzer Prize and twice nominated for the National Book Critics Circle Award - he is the author of Breakdowns and In the Shadow of No Towers. In January 2011, Art Spiegelman was awarded Le Grand Prix at the Angoulême International Comics Festival. From 2012 through 2014 a museum retrospective of his work, called Co-Mix, travelled to the Pompidou Center in Paris, the Ludwig Museum in Cologne, Germany, the Jewish Museum in New York, the Vancouver Art Gallery and the Art Gallery of Ontario. His most recent book is Si Lewen's Parade: An Artist's Oddyssey (2016). He lives in New York City with his wife, Françoise Mouly, and a cat named Voodoo.
