Gérard Trignac

Gérard Trignac is a French artist and engraver, born 1955.

As one critic said,
He is a dreamer of architecture who practices no other genre. He does not reconstruct ancient Rome, or inventory the built landscape, nor plan cities of the future: he draws his dreams.

Some of his work has been done as illustrations for works by others -- these are from Italo Calvino's Invisible Cities, an edition produced in 1993.

Exquisitely detailed renderings of imaginary places are one of my favorite art forms, so I love these.

Many more at the artist's web site.
