(b. 12/4/1953, Italy) Gaetano Liberatore studied architecture before he turned to illustrating in 1975. Three years later, he teamed up with Andrea Pazienza and Stefano Tamburini to create a first version of his 'Rankxerox' comic in Cannibale. At the same time, he worked for Il Male. He continued the 'Rankxerox' comic, this time rebaptized 'Ranxerox', in Frigidaire magazine in 1980. Later on, he comic also appeared in the French comics magazine L'Écho des Savanes. Liberatore then moved to Paris, where he began a versatile career in illustration (Tranfert, Métal Hurlant, À Suivre). In the comics field, he produced a variety of short stories written by Setbono, Daniel Varenne, Bruce Jones or Burce Helford in among others L'Écho des Savanes, Chic (in France), Twisted Tales and Hustler (USA). Some of these stories were collected in the 1984 comic book 'Vidéo-Clips'.The death of his friend Tamburini led to his departure from the comics field and his focus on illustration. He then illustrated Pierre Pelot and Yves Coppens's 'Le Rêve de Lucy'. He briefly revived the 'Ranxerox' character in 1993, this time written by Jean-Luc Fromental. Several books with his illustrations have appeared, such as 'Les Filles de Liberatore'. In 1998, he began 'Histoires de Filles' in L'Écho des Savanes. Although the work of Tanino Liberatore could be called realistic, this Italian comic artist has elements that go far beyond the traditional boundaries of the realistic genre. With the strange settings of his stories and the unusual coloring (for instance with lipstick) Liberatore's work could also be called bizarre, an impression that is reinforced by his use of "ultra-violence".
