Victoria Frances, part 2


Victoria Francés (1982-) is a Spanish illustrator. Her work is very goth-inspired: ghostly women in long dresses are perhaps the most common characters found in her art. Unsurprisingly, she cites her influences as Edgar Allan Poe, Anne Rice and H. P. Lovecraft. She also claims to have been influenced by the art of Luis Royo and Brom.

Influenced by pre-Raphaelite paintings, she chooses subjects that take many people to a symbolic, magical and ancient world. All the sufferings of the outcast of this world is shown in dark castles and mansions with flickering lights, with the distinct influence of Goethe, Edgar Allan Poe, Baudelaire and Bram Stoker.

From her early childhood she was fascinated by the beauty of the forest in Galicia, where she spent much of her infancy. After traveling to cities like London and Paris she was hypnotized by the atmosphere there, the same that brought to life legendary masterpieces of Gothic literature. Her illustrations and sketches recall the dreamlike world of Gothic Romanticism.
