Igort, the artistic name of Igor Tuveri (Italy, 1958), is a multifaceted artist. A prolific author of award-winning graphic novels, illustrator and editor, he is also a short story writer, novelist and musician.
He was the first European to draw manga in Japan and has published in the most prestigious international magazines, including those of his own country.
