Miles Hyman is a Vermont native who attended The Buxton School before studying drawing and printmaking with David Schorr at Wesleyan University in Connecticut. Hyman went on to attend the Paris Ecole des Beaux-arts. His first images appeared with French comics publisher Futuropolis in 1987.
Since then Hyman has enjoyed international recognition for his work as the author and illustrator of powerful and carefully-crafted graphic novels, including his adaptation of his grandmother Shirley Jackson’s renowned short story “The Lottery” (Hill & Wang/Casterman, 2016). The monograph Miles Hyman/Drawings, featuring a selection of more than 200 of his finest works to date, was published by French publisher Glénat in 2015.
Museums throughout Europe have exhibited Hyman’s work, including the Palais de Tokyo, The Glénat Foundation and the Musée de l’Illustration in Moulins, a 17th-Century architectural jewel located in the heart of France.
