A full color hardcover monograph dedicated to the artist Julien Delval, featuring paintings and illustrations of his imaginary worlds and other fantasy subjects. Minimal text is in both English and French.
Julien Delval, born in 1972, studied fine art and began his career as an illustrator for role-playing company Multisim. The connections he made at the firm led to the realization of numerous book covers for different publishing houses. Today, after working in comics, he works again in the gaming sector, mainly with Days of Wonder, and spends time devoted to his personal art work, sponsored by the Daniel Maghen Gallery in Paris.
He specializes in creating vivid and emotional scenes that are at once both gripping and sensitive. His inspiration for these ancient worlds, mythological characters and fantasy come from both classical painting and 20th century imagery.
This monograph is a magnificent showcase of his paintings and illustrations, filled with pages alive with haunting emotion and spectacularly drawn landscapes, giving the viewer the feeling of actually being in the scene.
Monograph is available alone or in a two volume set accompanied by a second complementary book to this collection: Julien Delval - Studies.
