The Artist: Alessandro Biffignandi
Alessandro Biffignandi was an Italian artist who primarily illustrated comics. He also created album and book covers. His work was marked by a sensual nature, often depicting nude women in extreme sexual situations. Biffignandi combined sex and horror in a sultry yet almost whimsical manner. His work was shocking, erotic, and sardonic.
Alessandro Biffignandi was born in Rome in 1935 and passed away in 2017.
He created many covers for Italian versions of English romances. While his work for English-language romance cover art is limited, Biffignandi’s style is lovely and eye-catching. The romance covers are much more subdued than his comic art which focuses on sex and horror.
We consider his paintings for romance worthy of appreciation.
