BOHDAN BUTENKO (POLAND, B. 1931)

Bohdan Butenko is considered to be a master of book illustration. His books are signed like old masters ones pinxit, meaning painted. He created popular polish drawing characters of Gapiszon and Kapiszon or Gucio and Cezar. Butenko graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. Soon after graduation, he was nominated for the position of artistic editor in Nasza Księgarnia (Our Library one of the biggest and most influential polish publishers of those times). In 1956, he published his first book Pan Maluśkiewicz i wieloryb (Mr. Tiniest and a Whale) by J. Tuwim and 35th May by Erich Kastner. Together with J. M_odo_eniec, D. Mróz and J. Stanny co-created the phenomenon called, Polish School of Illustration, which was unique on a world scale for over 30 years (the 50s–70s). The characters created by Butenko educate the third generation of young readers now. Over 200 books including the most iconic ones for polish literature were illustrated by him namely J. Brzechwa, J. Tuwim, W. Chotmska or E. Niziurski. Butenko received hundreds of awards IBA (Lipsk) in 1965; Premio Europeo (Padwa) in 1976 and IMAGE (Istambul) in 2003.
