Growing up in a household where both parents were artists exposed Bill Basso to all types of art from a very young age.
Combining equal amounts of horror movie magazines and comic books with Renaissance or Eastern European art, for example, helped to shape Billís artistic sensibilities.
After graduating from the Parsons School of Design in New York where he recieved a BFA in illustration, he became interested in special effects for the film industry and eventually relocated from New Jersey to Glendale, California were he currently resides.
He has contributed his artistry to many well known films- Edward Scissorhands, Terminator 2, Jurassic Park and Interview with the Vampire among them.
For the past several years, Bill has been focused on developing his personal artistic vision, creating mixed media works as well as taking on freelance projects. His award winning work has been featured in Spectrum and The Society of Illustrators art annuals.
