Artist Profile: Pino Daeni (1939–2010)


A Flame Run Wild

Pino Daeni was born in Bari, Italy and, because his father did not originally support his artistic interests, was originally a self-taught artist.  Eventually, Pino did enroll in the Art Institute of Bari and then the Academy of Brera in Milan.  After his paintings won several awards in Italy, he moved to New York.  In the U.S., his work caught the attention of both Dell and Zebra Book Publishers and he was soon one of the most active and highest book illustrators in the business.  Over the course of his career, he created over 3,000 book covers, movie posters, and magazine illustrations.  A small sampling of his work can be found below.
