A comics biography of the famous and controversial pop artist

Niki de Saint Phalle knew art could save the world because art saved her. From madness, from violence. From herself. Niki de Saint Phalle was a French-American sculptor, painter, and filmmaker. She was one of the few women artists widely known for monumental sculpture.


"Osuch captures the spirit of her subject in this exceptional graphic biography of avant-garde sculptor, painter, and filmmaker Niki de Saint Phalle." —Publishers Weekly

"Burst[s] with the joy of creative fervor." —Summer Hayes, Booklist

"With personable illustrative work that tempts you to enter De Saint Phalle's world, and an amiable, sometimes casual narrative delivery that makes you feel more a part of the biography than an outside observer, Niki de Saint Phalle: The Garden of Secrets makes an important mark in our art history knowledge." —John Seven, Comics Beat

Publishers Weekly Annual Graphic Novel Critics Poll, Honorable mention. —
