Boris Vallejo

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.

  1. I like Boris too. Since he does a lot of fantasy art, I’ve seen him on the covers of some of my more favourite books, along with Michael Whelan and John Jude Palencar. 😉

  2. I love Boris’ work… I used to do a lot of Yahoo! and other web-based RPGs and I frequently used his pictures for character pictures… he’s awesome.

  3. Oh! So cool :) I’m going to send the link to Boris Vallejo’s page to my brother. He’s a graphic designer, but most of all, he does illustration. He sure knows how to appreciate art.

  4. art is always awesome. :) a form of an artist’s true expression.. :) i liked mixed genres of art: writing, poetry, fantasy, dark horror, etc.. :)

  5. i have a pen and ink drawing and a book that he had signd and i am trying to sell it and i wanted to know if he was still alive as bad as it sounds if he is dead i can make more off of it
