Artist Bio

Peter Kuper, who has been a visiting artist at UND, is a New York alternative cartoonist and graphic novelist. He is perhaps best known for taking over Mad magazine's Spy vs. Spy (beginning in 1977), but his illustrations and comics also appear regularly in Time, Newsweek, and The New York Times. Furthermore, he is a co-founder of the political graphics magazine, World War 3 Illustrated. Kuper has produced over twenty books including adaptions of Franz Kafka's The Metamorphosis and Give it Up.

Additional Information

In this work, Kuper appropriates a famous work by Magritte to express his criticism towards the President of the United States at the time. This print was produced by the artist at the Department of Art and Design’s printmaking facility while he visited UND on March 26, 2008 during the 39th Annual Writers Conference.
