I make NO EXCUSE for bringing this gentleman's art here.

Love it or hate it, you have to admit that it is skillfull and intricate. Well researched and world recognised as powerful.

Who is it?

Boris Vallejo

Fantasy artist, poster designer extraordinary

Peruvian born and attracted to USA where he now lives.

I suggest that you check out his images online.


Roger,

Thanks for bringing in Peruvian artists.
This painting is so powerful (in all elements).
Painters are half originators, half prophets.

I am astonished.
Simply : beauty is indestructible.

JOSE DE LA BARRA has different artistic roots, he is less mystic and more acoustic than Boris Vallejo, but hardly I'd tell which is more appealing and more seductive to my senses. I agree, his colors are incredibly beautiful.
Thanks Roger!

Hi Roger and friends,

Though unfamiliar for the most part with
Jose de la Barra's art, I love most of his paintings. I appreciate your posting them, Roger. May I say, you are right in your love of color. Jose de la Barra's use of it is fantastic, as fantastic as his subjects are. In my opinion, he is wonderful as an artist, a winner in every sense.



It is different with Boris Vallejo, he looks to me more an American from U.S.A than a Peruvian; and while his art is indeed spectacular, it is apparently limited to the world of fantasy you see in cartoons. However, and it is with deep regret that I say this, I would need to know it better before giving a more specific opinion.

As to Amilcar Zorrilla: again, I would like to know his work better as to be frank, I find the abstract and the self-portrait (I am assuming it is a self-portrait)
extraordinary; but the Indians with the stepped pyramid in the background would seem to be painted by another artist, possibly a Mexican one, as this work looks very much like some aboriginal frescoes in the Maya or the Aztec ruins do. But this of course is only my opinion and it may be wrong.

Hugs,

Miguel

Thanks Miguel,

It's my aim with my South American forums to stir some interest in too little a discussed area of art. So many pre 1900 artists were trained in what we might call Western or widely European styles and it took movements like the impressionists to break away from that mould. Some of the artists that I bring may be popular artists but I feel that one day their work will be appreciated for their depiction of the modern mind.

I am glad that not every artist here is the group of GOOD artists but appeal to many. After all, most artists need either self-satisfaction or the applause of the world in general. As long as peoplr are honest in their views a comment about my work spurs me to do better or to follow a certain course. What I am discovering is that to make a living as an artist you have to be good or give people what they like. I suspect that knowing the history of European art a little, that I'm not the first aspiring artist to discover this?
