I love Art, I love Colombian Art, I love Spanish Art, I love all Art. How eloquent of me :). If I have to pick a type of art order of liking I would have to say any kind of illustration, paint, sketch kind of thing would be at the top of my list. I enjoy sculpture, music and writing but I love pictures. Now that we got that out of the way I come to Boris Vallejo one of my favorite artists.
Boris Vallejo was born in Peru, he is not Colombian but close enough 🙂 and he is not just talented but outright inspirational. Mind you I will provide links to his work, but I do have to warn that some of the pictures include nude. Not in a pornographic kind of way, but very artistic. A lot of his work involves fantasy and I think that his art really incorporates reality. Meaning the pictures are fantasy but his representation makes them seem very real.
I post this because I visited Noelle’s site and she made me think of Vallejo but she did not know who he was. Then I asked a couple of my online friends from the US and Canada and they did not know who he was either. I thought he was very well known, but I guess he is not so I wanted to share. I first saw Vallejo’s work tanks to my friend Ramon who gets his Calendar every year. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do and please leave me your impression on his art. And please let me know at least if you had heard or not about him.
