The Superheroes & Bored Princesses of Antonio Lorente

Antonio Lorente‘s works are like the images that flood into your mind between the half-awake and dreamlike states of sleep. Big eyes and disproportionate features bursting with personality, his beautifully interpreted characters stare at you intimately and often dramatically from the page and draw you into their world. Each piece so unique, their expressions telling stories through humour and mystery, enticing the viewer into the boldness and vibrancy of the piece, sometimes brimming with tiny details and other times dramatically stark and demanding attention.

It isn’t too hard to see why Antonio’s work has been featured on album covers, books and animations. Although there are clear inspirations behind his style, they are wonderfully unique and you will find something to adore in each and every piece. Even well known superheroes and celebrities take on a whole new life. Antonio’s imagination and creativity transform these iconic images into something magnificently new again.

The wonderful artist behind these works has always known that this is his calling, born in the South of Spain in the City Almeria, Antonio says “From a young age my passion for art made me realize that this was the path that I was born to follow. My true interest lies in illustrations” Currently living in London, Antonio has been embracing the city’s vibrant culture. He has been establishing himself as an illustrator in the City for the past 3 years, he feels it offers him diversity and innovation, which you can clearly see he has achieved in his current work.

With solo exhibitions in Spain, Italy, UK, Portugal and France and group exhibitions in Las Vegas, New York and México. It’s only a matter of time before you will come across some of Antonio’s illustrations. He has a wonderful book quickly gaining popularity called La Princesa Aburrida (The Bored Princess) written by his sister and full of his amazing images, a second book is currently in the works and due for release in 2017.

About Author

Kylie Dexter was born (and is currently living with her gorgeous boys, Rob and Zen)  in Melbourne, Australia. Inspired by Pop Surrealism and the New Contemporary Art movement  she began collecting original works and sculptures in the mid 90's. Since then her collection has grown to epic proportions. She has had an obsession with art from a young age and has an eye for emerging artists, and a deep understanding of the narrative the artist is trying to portray. She believes art can change the way people think and reach the deepest part of their psyches. Kylie has faith in art's ability to create an energy to express and reflect the  deep symbolism and stories that are untouchable in normal reality. She also has a  heartfelt connection to music and is a self-taught artist who brings needle felting to life via her dolls that are sold and shown around the world.   With an enthusiastic addiction for writing about art, talking about art, looking at art and making art, what better place to be, surrounded by what you love! I feel passionate that Beautiful Bizarre Magazine raises the profile of up and coming artists, supports those already in the industry and contributes positively to galleries who share a common goal; to keep art alive and flowing, to keep people creating and more importantly keep people collecting and expressing themselves via the images on their walls. .
