For the last half century, Frank Frazetta has dominated the world of
Fantasy Art with his images of fierce warriors, helpless princesses, grotesque
monsters, and fantastic creatures, all set in the most lavish landscapes.
Frazetta is best known for his paintings of Robert E. Howard's quintessential
sword and sorcery hero "Conan the Barbarian". Today, a Frank
Frazetta painting can fetch up to $250,000 on the open market.
In this documentary, director Lance Laspina lifts the curtain on an artist
who has largely avoided the public eye. Painting with Fire tells of a
fascinating life and what Frazetta's artwork means to future generations.
The film is not only a love letter to the art form, but to the artist
as well, tracing his life from his Brooklyn childhood to the present,
and focusing on Frazetta's unique combination of skills and intuition.
An oil painting done at the age of eight reveals Frazettas inborn
gift and footage of the 72-year-old artist painting left-handed (his right
arm was incapacitated by a stroke) portrays indomitable willpower. This
film is a must see for every comic book and graphic novel fan. Share an
intimate moment with this artistic virtuoso as we unfold Frank Frazetta's
extraordinary life story.
