Grzegorz Rosiński

Grzegorz
Rosiński

Grzegorz Rosiński is a comic and book illustrator, painter, and artist. By 1981, he had already illustrated around 60 books for various Polish publishing houses.

 

Since 1968, he has mainly focused on creating comics, such as the series The Legendary History of Poland, Captain Żbik, and Pilot Śmigłowca. In the second half of the 1970s, he worked as the artistic director for the comics magazine Relax. In 1976, he began collaborating with Belgian publishing houses, creating illustrations for popular comic book series such as Thorgal (script by Jean van Hamme). In 1982, difficulties arising from martial law in Poland led to Rosiński moving permanently to Belgium, and eventually settling in Switzerland. Apart from Thorgal, which spawned three spin-off series, Rosiński likewise illustrated the popular series Hans (script by Andrè-Paul Duchâteau), Complaint de lands perdues (script by Jean Dufaux), Western, The Great Power of Chninkel (script by Jean van Hamme), as well as Vengeance du comte Skarbek (script by Yves Sente).

 

In 2003, Grzegorz Rosiński presented a large retrospective of his work at the Angoulême International Comics Festival, and again at the Sierre Comics Festival. The exhibition, supplemented with additional materials, travelled on and in November 2004 received an honorary spot at the Parisian Conciergerie.
