Victor Prieto creates illustrative drawings and prints inspired by popular culture, horror movies, comics, and tattoos. He works in series, creating images that work together to form a larger narrative. Victor draws from observation, photographs, and his imagination depicting figures, skeletons, animals, and floral images. Working primarily in graphite, ink, and watercolor, Victor uses vivid marks, dynamic lines, patterning, and dramatic compositions to illustrate his subjects.
