Biography and information
 
Frank Frazetta (February 9, 1928, New York, USA — May 10, 2010, Florida, USA) — American artist, illustrator and cartoonist. The creator of comics and illustrations in the style of a kind of neo-romanticism, which became the "icons" of an aggressive fantasy art branch. Works in the genre of westerns, fantasy, mystery, scientific and historical fiction.

Features of creativity: Became recognizable "conservative king of low art." Emphasizes primitive aggression and sexuality. Semi-naked women with exaggerated-curvaceous forms, primitive warriors in animal skins, monstrous beasts with burning eyes, fighters of "space operas" armed to the teeth are always present in the images. All the action takes place against the backdrop of wild nature, blazing fire, blood, ruins and skulls.

The most famous paintings: "Son of Tarzana", "Conan", Death Merchant.

He graduated from the Brooklyn Academy of Arts. From the age of 16 he has been professionally drawing comics. Recognized as the "king" of the book covers of the mass editions of science fiction, fantasy.
His work is a cult of power, life and energy. Known images of Conan, Tarzan, Vampirella and other fantastic warriors. Winner of many awards, incl. Hugo and Barlog.
