Arnaud Valette is a French artist specializing in concept art for major movie productions. An art school graduate from the University of Toulouse, and a student at the Supinfocom-Arles, a French school specialising in art for CG movies, Valette quickly made a name for himself. His portfolio as a concept artist is impressive: the list of blockbuster movies he has worked on goes on forever. From Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, to Guardians of the Galaxy and The Mummy, Valette offers strong imaginations of the world the movie in question is set in, providing anything from concept sketches to 3D prop designs.
His personal work, such as those on sale at Cook & Becker, aren’t any less imaginative. Bold compositions, and strong, saturated coloring bring these digital paintings to life in an almost cinematic way.
