Gifted artists often interpret a familiar subject in unique and surprising ways, producing works that resonate with history, yet shock and confound us. Paulo Toledo is adept at producing such comforting and confusing works, drawing from deep mythological sources to illustrate oddly compelling characters.
With an loving emphasis on enchanting elvish folk, Mr. Toledo imbues new life in many fantasy mainstays with culture-bending fashion and tantalizing tattoos, plus constant experimentation with painterly and anime styles.
Alternate histories have never looked so beautiful!
