Without doubt, Enrique Torres-Prat (also known as Enric) has to be one of the all time great Vampirella artists. A master of paint and canvas, Enric's work graced many a cover of Warren Publishing's Creepy, Eerie and Vampirella.
The quality of Enric's work speaks for itself and regularly fetches top prices on the rare occasion that one of his pieces comes up for sale. For example, a painting of Vampirella squatting in a ring of fire sold for just under $9,000 in 2008.
Enric’s formal studies in technique and art history blend well with his attention to detail. Whether a portrait that hangs in the most prestigious of museums or a landscape that is hung proudly in a classical art gallery, Enric creates each with the utmost of care. Each and every piece he creates has to be the best that it can be.
Enric signs his gallery works "Torres-Prat" and his illustration works "Enric" but irrespective of the signature you can spot an Enric masterpiece a mile away.
He is one of my all time top ten Vampirella artists and will probably remain on that august list ad infinitum.
There is a rare artistic device called a triptych. Basically, a triptych is:-
Triptych (trišp'tišk) noun (from the Greek tri- "three" + ptyche¯ "fold")
A work of art (usually a panel painting) which is divided into three sections, or three carved panels which are hinged together. The central panel is the most important one, and this is flanked on either side by two lesser but related paintings. The whole is intended to be greater than the sum of the parts. The triptych form arises from early Christian art, and was the standard format for altar paintings from the Middle Ages onwards.
Enric is responsible for a couple of stunning Vampirella triptychs shown below.
