First Love - Boris Vallejo - Framed Plate - 14"H x 11"W

Boris Vallejo is a Fantasy Award winning Peruvian artist. He currently resides in the United States. He frequently works with Julie Bell.

Vallejo works almost exclusively in the fantasy and erotica genres. His hyper-representational paintings have graced the covers of dozens of science fiction paperbacks and are featured in a series of best-selling glossy calendars. Subjects of his paintings are typically Sword and sorcery gods, monsters, and well-muscled male and female barbarians engaged in battle. Some of his male figures were modeled by Vallejo himself, and many of his later female characters were modeled by his wife.

He quickly garnered a fan following from his illustrations of Tarzan, Conan the Barbarian, Doc Savage and various other fantasy characters often done for paperback fiction works featuring the characters.

Vallejo's work is often compared to the work of Frank Frazetta, not only because it is similar stylistically, but also since Frazetta painted covers for paperbacks of some of the same characters.

Vallejo has created film posters for numerous fantasy and action productions, including Knightriders, Q, and Barbarian Queen. He is also notable for his illustrated posters for National Lampoon's Vacation and European Vacation.
