William Basso

William Basso (1962-2023) grew up in a household where both parents were artists, exposing him to all types of art from a very young age. Combining equal amounts of horror movie magazines and comic books with Renaissance or Eastern European art, for example, helped to shape William’s artistic sensibilities. He has contributed his artistry to many well known films, including Edward Scissorhands, Terminator 2, Batman Returns, Jurassic Park and Interview with a Vampire among them. After working for almost twenty years in the film industry, William became focused on developing his personal artistic vision, creating mixed media works as well as taking on freelance projects. His award-winning work has been exhibited in a number of galleries around the country as well as being featured in SPECTRUM and The Society of Illustrators art annuals. William Basso passed away on May 4, 2023. The limited edition of Hell House by Richard Matheson is among his final works.
