Juan Gimenez was an Argentinian born comic book artist and writer, most recognized for his trademark intricate artwork, evoking mechanical designs.
Always fascinated by drawing, he graduated as an industrial designer and later studied at Barcelona’s Academy of Fine Arts. Though he was 16 years old when his first story was published, his professional career was spent in advertising until in his 30s he turned drawing comics into his sole occupation.
He’s renowned worldwide for works such as Estrella Negra, Question of Time, Trash, The Fourth Power, City, and The Saga of the Meta-barons, a comic series relating the history of a dynasty of perfect warriors co-developed with author Alejandro Jodorowsky.
His themes revolve around wonderful imaginaries belonging to the fantasy and sci-fi genres. Gimenez’s style became famous for the extreme attention he devoted to technical and historical details.
Gimenez received awards such as the The Yellow Kid in Italy, the Bulle D’Or in France or best cartoonist at the Barcelona International Comic Fair, among others.
Juan Gimenez passed away in 2020 and his studio and library had been kept as he left them.
