Oscar Chichoni is a Argentine illustrator of comic books and science fiction magazines and books.
Chichoni was born in a desolate hamlet in Corral de Bustos, province of Cordoba, and is self-taught in art. He published his first comic books pictures at the age of 17 for the Argentine publisher Record, and soon his work was paralleled to that of some famous authors like Alberto Breccia, Juan Zanotto and Juan Gimenez.
Following this period as a comic book artist, Chichoni devoted himself to painting. He spent two times studying under the painter Alvaro Izurieta, and began to draw book covers for several publishers, becoming soon renowned in all the world for his powerful and well-detailed anatomies.
