Fuck Yeah Fantasy Art…<br/>The Alternate Universe of… <br/>BORIS VALLEJO Art Essay<br/> by November 15, 2012 0 comments

Gazing at art has always been a way for me to travel to other worlds in my mind. Growing up in the 80’s, I remember staring at Heavy Metal magazine for hours – I would be transfixed by the colors. The master of fantasy art is Boris Vallejo, and for decades he has been creating alternate universes with his work. Inside of his world, women have huge muscles and fight off dragons and other beasts. When you look at Boris’s work, you can see the impact he has had on illustrators within the heavy music community. Today CVLT Nation would like to celebrate this fantasy wizard with a mammoth art gallery of his work. So after the jump, get ready to go to a place where the color is alive!
