"Slowly he started to question"
by sabine7 / February 7, 2008
Peter Sís grew up in Communist Prague, drawing on the sly and reading forbidden books. His work as an animator allowed him to travel and eventually seek asylum in the U.S. When Sís moved to New York in 1984, he started his career as the author/illustrator of children’s books. His illustrations are rich, layered tapestries of incredibly fine pen and pencil work, detailing works of his creation that stem from his experiences and observations. Freedom of Expression is Peter Sís’s first New York exhibition and is a good sampling of work that reinforces the importance of freedom and a reminder to viewers to avoid taking it for granted.
