Greg Spalenka’s distinctive, dreamlike images haunt the mind, invoking new and old myths, populated with fire beings, desert spirits, and winged, ethereal creatures. His vast landscapes of extraordinary worlds lend themselves to exploration and contemplation, with vivid touches and tangible details that bring alien expanses, charmed forests, and mysterious labyrinths alike to life.
Spalenka has worked in a wide variety of fields in his long and accomplished career, and his recent work has included concept design for films like The Ant Bully, The Golden Compass, Escape from Planet Earth (2012 release), and The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.
We’re excited to present the following preview of The Art of Greg Spalenka, out on September 23rd from Titan Books. This 176-page volume, printed in metallic ink, highlights more than 30 years of Spalenka’s career as an artist, along with instructional elements to inspire the reader.
