Theodor Seuss Geisel, a.k.a. Dr. Seuss, began his career as a little known editorial cartoonist in the 1920's. His intriguing perspective and fresh concepts ignited his career, and his work evolved quickly to deft illustrations, modeled sculpture and sophisticated oil paintings of elaborate imagination. Dr. Seuss is currently best known as one of the most beloved and bestselling children's authors of all time, having written and illustrated classics such as Green Eggs & Ham and How The Grinch Stole Christmas! Today his "Secret Art" Collection hangs in fine art galleries around the world.
About Animazing Gallery | A landmark gallery in SoHo since 1984, AFA (formerly Animazing) began as an exhibition space specializing in conceptual animation art. Over time, we broadened that scope to include works by renowned Illustrators and pop culture commercial artists as well as fine artists. In 2012, in keeping with the momentum of our natural development and growth, we revamped the gallery's program with new artists, exhibitions and endeavors and renamed it AFA (Animazing Fine Art).
