Caricaturist KEN FALLIN plus Remembering AL HIRSCHFELD with ART SPIEGELMAN

On July 16, 2017 by Theater Talk Web

Theater Talk welcomes artist Ken Fallin, whose  pen and ink celebrity portraits are astute and witty observations of the theater scene. His work has appeared in The Wall Street Journal, In Style, The New Yorker, The Hollywood Reporter, The L.A. Times, The Washington Post, and Barron’s Magazine. Fallin discusses how he went from being a young aspiring actor to one of the most sought after caricaturists working today. He also shows us a number of his best works, including some wonderful new drawings of the 2017 Broadway season.
Next up, we present highlights of Theater Talk’s conversation with arguably the greatest caricaturist of the 20th Century, Al Hirschfeld. Back in 2001 we invited Pulitzer-Prize winning cartoonist Art Spiegelman to interview the legendary artist in his studio.  The two masters hit it off immediately, and their fascinating conversation about the art of capturing a person’s essence with line, as well as Hirschfeld’s life and career, now serves as a tribute to Hirschfeld who died in 2003 at age 99.
