Hailing from Colombia, South America, Julian de Narvaez is an artist with an antiquated illustration style. Resembling the woodcuts that were used to illustrate children’s books in days of yore, Julian’s art works capture the essence of both a world from the past and a world that exists only in fairy tales and the artist’s imagination.
Animals have been personified in children’s stories and folk tales for centuries. Julian de Narvaez gives these personified creatures form in his illustrations, bringing their humanity to life with human clothing and personalities. This is not the only type of magic that Narvaez depicts in his illustrations – scenes of Santa Claus, the Christmas fairy and clockwork toys coming to life all point to the sense of magical wonder that children see in the world and so enjoy in fairy tales.
Julian de Narvaez has created illustrations for children’s fairy tales books and an illustrated book of Bible stories and continues to delight his clients with his professional, appealing illustrations. Take a look at Julian de Narvaez’s website or Behance portfolio for more info and illustrations.
