Fred Gambino Sci-Fi Artworks

Fred Gambino is a British painter and illustrator, best known for his sci-fi book covers. He has created cover images for works by many famous authors in science fiction for 30 years. He is now acclaimed for his mastery of digital imagery, creating diverse concept images in sci-fi. Artist says: "I began my work as a sci-fi illustrator using traditional airbrush techniques. With the advent of graphic based computer technology, my work developed on the digital side as well. So, today it seems, I have my feet planted in two different worlds - the traditional and the contemporary. As far as illustration is concerned, there will always be a need for sound creative ideas and strong traditional drawing skills."

Here are some his work includes a breathtaking selection of artworks from spaceships, stars and galaxies, heroes and heroines of futuristic worlds. More artworks can be found on the web, but many these pictures small or medium size. For more information check out the Fred Gambino Illustrations.

Ground Zero - The Art of Fred Gambino

Book Description: The first collection of work from this highly-respected artist and illustrator Includes a breathtaking selection of artworks from spaceships, stars and galaxies, to the heroes and heroines of futuristic worlds Chapter introductions by leading SF artists and authors, including Jim Burns, Chris Moore, Robert Sawyer, David Brin and Elizabeth Moon Acclaimed for his mastery of digital imagery, Gambino's work is instantly recognizable - from covers for the Foundation series of novels by Isaac Asimov to works by luminaries such as David Brin, William Shatner, Ray Bradbury and Elizabeth Moon. Inspired initially by Gerry Anderson, Gambino first hand-made his hardware as small-scale sculptures, photographing them and creating the futuristic images that have almost become his trademark. He is now acclaimed for his mastery of digital imagery, creating such diverse images as the stunning "Heaven's Reach" to the sensuous figure of flight in "Nightwings". Ground Zero brings together worlds of unearthly contradictions in this single volume.

Thanks for this excellent post. Gambino is a master. I'm old enough to love his artwork way back when it was yet arcane and unappreciated as non-art. But I remember when much of Sci-Fi was generally considered fringe sub-literature.
