Tim Burton. Untitled (The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy and Other Stories).
What will Tim Burton think of next? One thing is for sure, his movies will either strike a nerve, or scare dollars out of your pocket. It’s that fine line of what’s eerie, and different that makes the director who dreamed up the paranormal world of Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, and two brilliant Batman flicks an artist worthy of profiling at the Museum of Modern Art. Starting on November 22nd the jarring characters of Burton’s imagination will be displayed at New York’s MoMa, showcasing animation, drawings, and photography of his haunting characters. Catch a preview of Tim’s animation below, plus a bonus clip of his crown jewel, Batman Returns.
