Marc Burckhardt (born 1962) is an American illustrator, fine artist and children's illustrator. Burckhardt’s work juxtaposes old world styles and symbols with current American themes. The artists early influences were the painters Albrecht Dürer, Jan van Eyck, and Diego Rivera, but also comic artists such as Robert Crumb and Gilbert Shelton. Burckhardt is quoted as saying that both his fine arts work and his commercial work is less influenced by any one artist and more with periods and genres such as Medieval religious icons, early American and English sporting paintings as well as craft-based workaday art. The artist's work is in numerous private collections, including that of the estate of Johnny Cash, who commissioned Burckhardt to paint a portrait of his wife June Carter Cash for his home outside Nashville, Tennessee. Burckhardt's fine arts work have been shown throughout the United States and internationally. Burckhardt's illustration work has illustrated the covers of many books, album/CD covers and been featured in print magazines such as Rolling Stone, Texas Monthly, Oxford American, Time magazine and many others. His style is strongly symbolic and surealistic. Visit his personal sites HERE and HERE for more of his work.
