Luis Royo - 1


Soundtrack of the list

Luis Royo is a Spanish artist born in Olalla. He is best known for his fantasy illustrations published in numerous art books, magazines such as Heavy Metal and various other media including book and music CD covers, video games and Tarot cards.

His practical standpoint, acquired from his economically humble family, led him to study Technical Drawing for construction. He soon discovered that geometric forms did not satisfy him fully. Later, he began to study painting, decoration and interior design at the Industrial School and the School of Applied Arts, and combined with different jobs in interior design and decoration studios. During this time he also combined his work with painting. Influenced by the student revolts of May 1968, he painted large format tiles with social issues and made exhibitions from 1972 to 1977.

The discovery of adult comics with the work of artists such as Enki Bilal and Moebius captivated him and he started drawing comics for different fanzines and comics exhibiting at the Angoulême International Comics Festival.

In 1979 he left his job as a furnish designer, to devote himself entirely to comics. In 1981 and 1982 he began to publish in journals such as Comix Rambla Interrnacional, and sometimes in El Vibora and Heavy Metal.

A meeting in 1983 in Zaragoza Comic Fair would determine his professional future.
