Art Focus: Nekro
Hello Chosen Ones,
Today, we introduce to you the amazing Nekro! He will be working with Bastien to create the shards for GODS with his unique style and experience.
About Nekro: Nekro is an artist born in Spain in 1983. With more than ten years of experience, Nekro, the digital alchemist, has worked with the most prestigious publishers (Harper Collins, Penguin Books, Random House, Tor Books...) in more than 20 countries. He illustrated covers for Stephen King (The Dark Tower), Garth Nix (The Keyes to the Kingdom), and Philip Reeve (Fever Crumb, in the Moral Engines universe). He also worked with some of the best art directors in the world: Irene Gallo (Tor Books and Orbit Books) and Jon Schindehette (Disney, Fox, Warner Brothers, Hasbro, Wizard of the Coast). His works were seen on Heavy Metal and four time in a row in Spectrum. He now shares his time between his work as a cover artist and a concept artist, and the creation of his next book.
Bastien's words on Nekro's work - "I have known Nekro's work from its early hours, and always saw all the influences and tastes we, as artists, have in common. When I started to think about the ideal artist to work with me on the Shards' visual depiction for GODS, I had a few words in mind: I wanted someone who can create a rended that is "antique" and "modern" at the same time. Someone who's work suggests "craftsmanship" and "sharp" metal. And to this list I wanted to add a touch of "magic". Well here we are: Nekro's work has all that! And a lot more."
