I’m Hugo Bravo and I’ve been a freelance Illustrator since 1992. I received his education as an oil painter at the Fashion Institute of Technology. After graduating, I then immersed myself in the inspired and varied art scene. Formative years in the early ’90s were spent as a member of the artist collective SOL Concepts participating in group art exhibits while working for the independent film industry as a storyboard artist, scenic artist, and art director.
I balance modern concepts with classical realism in my paintings. My subject matter revolves around the human figure interlaced with personal experiences, dreams, and movie inspirations.
My influences and inspirations encompass fellow artists, visits to the local comic book stores as well as museums – including the Met, Prado, and Louvre.
My work spans a variety of genres, including novels, comics, film, advertising, and portraits. My work includes cover art for all three of the “Redeem The Knight” novel series for author David V. Mammina. My original oil paintings have been exhibited at events such as Illuxcon, New York Comic Con, Philadelphia Comic-Con, and private galleries and collections.
