He immigrated to the United States in , and he currently resides in Allentown, Pennsylvania. He frequently works with Julie Bell, his wife, painter, and model.

His hyper-representational paintings have graced the covers of dozens of science fiction backs and are featured in a series of best-selling glossy calendars. Subjects of his paintings are typically , monsters, and well-muscled male and female barbarians engaged in battle. Some of his male figures were modeled by Vallejo himself, and many of his later female characters were modeled by his wife. His latest works still retain heavy ntasy elements, but lean more towards the erotic rather than pure ntasy themes. 内容来自dedecms

Vallejo began painting at the age of , in , and had his first illustration job three years later, in , at the age of . He attended the Escuela National de Bellas Artes on a five-year scholarship, and was awarded a prize medal.


After emigrating to the United States in , at the age of , he quickly garnered a n following from his illustrations of Tarzan, Conan the Barbarian, Doc Savage and various other ntasy characters (often done for back fiction works featuring the characters). This led to commissions for movie poster illustration, advertisement illustration, and artwork for various collectibles - including Franklin Mint paraphernalia, trading cards, and sculpture. Along with Bell, Vallejo presents his artwork in an annual calendar and various books. Vallejos work is often compared to the work of Frank Frazetta, not only because it is similar stylistically, but also since Frazetta painted covers for backs of some of the same characters. 本文来自织梦

Vallejos preferred artistic medium is oil paint on board, and has previously used digital media to combine discrete images to form composite images. Preparatory works are pencil or ink sketches, which have been displayed in the book Sketchbook. He and Julie Bell have worked on collaborative artworks together, in which they sign the artwork with both names.

Vallejo has created film posters for numerous ntasy and action productions, including Knightriders (), Q (), and Barbarian Queen (). He has also illustrated posters for comedies, notably National Lampoons Vacation (), European Vacation (), and Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters (), co-created with Bell.

Vallejo is married to fellow artist Julie Bell, whose artistic style is very similar to Vallejos. He has two children from a previous marriage to artist and writer Doris Vallejo as well as two stepsons. His son, Dorian Vallejo, also has produced work in the ntasy genre but now works primarily as a portrait painter. His daughter, Maya Vallejo, is a professional photographer. His stepsons, Anthony Palumbo and David Palumbo, are both painters for fine art galleries as well as illustrators in the science fiction/ntasy genre.

The Ween song Vallejo is a tribute to the artist. Weens drummer, Claude Coleman Jr, attended high school with Vallejos children in Maplewood, New Jersey.
