The Art of Victoria Francés

You may not have heard of Victoria Francés before but I bet you have seen her artwork all over – books, websites, posters, calendars…etc. her vampire artwork has been everywhere. Personally, she is my favorite vampire artist. Every image she creates captures the beauty, sexiness and horror of the vampire (check out the bottom of the this post for a small collection of her work).

The biography of Victoria Francés (from her fan site):

Victoria Francés was born on October 25th, 1982. From her early childhood she was fascinated by the beauty of the forest in Galicia, where she spent much of her infancy. After traveling to cities like London and Paris she was hypnotized by the atmosphere there, the same that brought to life legendary masterpieces of Gothic literature. Her illustrations and sketches recall the dreamlike world of Gothic Romanticism.

Influenced by pre-Raphaelite paintings, she chooses subjects that take us to a symbolic, magical and ancient world. All the sufferings of the outcast of this world is shown in dark castles and mansions with flickering lights, with the distinct influence of Goethe, Edgar Allan Poe, Baudelaire and even Bram Stoker.

She attended the San Carlos University, Valencia, Spain where she studied Fine Arts. There she started working as an illustrator while also designing various book covers and other commissioned pieces. Favole, her first illustrated book, is the remembrance of three cities, Verona, Venice and Genoa, and it was the sensation in the 2004 Saló del Còmic in Barcelona, attaining widespread success in all the countries where it has been published. Soon after Favole II & III followed gaining her even more success. Her most recent published work is called El Corazón de Arlene (Arlene’s heart) in 2008.

This exceptionally gifted artist and at the same time marvelous illustrator and narrator can expect a successful future ahead of her. Her ability to make readers (who aren’t even familiar with the gothic art) fascinated with her work is extraordinary. We can expect to see a lot more of Victoria Francés in the future.

You can find Victoria Francés official website here (keep in mind she is from Spain, therefore the site is in Spanish).

Moonlight (aka Amanda) loves to write about, read about and learn about everything pertaining to vampires. You will most likely find her huddled over a book of vampire folklore with coffee in hand. Touch her coffee and she may bite you (and not in the fun way).

  2. I have the purple fairy/angel girl thingie one, and the ‘forest kiss’, as I so prettifully call it. They are by far the most favorite posters I have in my room.
    Pretty much all of her work can be found in the ‘wiccan’ shop in my town, it’s brilliant ^_^

  3. I’ve honestly never heard of Victoria Frances until the day of my 18th birthday when my boy friend took me to X-Mart for the first time and i saw the poster of the sexy red head whos one her knees looking up at you and she has a thorn of roses around her head. i loved that picture so much that the rose that is in her lap, im gettin as a tatoo on my back. I honestly thought the name victoria was of the Vapmpire until i got curious and looked her up. I was in love ever since. her art work is beyond amazing. Ive always had a thing for sex and vampires and she just brings out the lust in all her paintings and i love it.

    1. I totally understand what u mean i have that same poster along with 6 others and my ex bf actually started me on Victoria Frances 2. im thinking about getting a tattoo of something small like tht. I love her work and it would so awesome to actually meet her!
