Coinciding with the much anticipated summer 2000 live action movie The X-Men, comes Titans, a collection of awe-inspiring original artwork created by husband and wife team Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell. Along with using a classic sense of style to create and master sensuous full color oil paintings, Boris Vallejo is best known as the visual creator of Conan the Barbarian. Combining strength with sensuality and infusing the human form with incredible power and motion, fantasy artist Julie Bell continues to use her "metal flesh" trademark to produce dramatic works of art. This collection overflows with superhuman characters captured in the act of saving the world, destroying evil protagonists and battling dark beasts. Featuring fantastic figures such as Spiderman, Captain America, and the X-Men, these paintings represent the best of Boris and Julie.

Review:

At the heart of Julie Bell's art is a celebration of the human form, developed to perfection and beyond in the exotic fantasy realms conjured by her imagination. Her paintings glitter with shining metal painted with stunning conviction. Power and sensuality are her themes, as are contrasts of both texture and mood; and these strands find expression in contemporary popular culture icons such as heroic barbarians and comic book superheroes. Hard Curves is divided in sections devoted to "Metallic Images", "Sensuality"; "Portraits"; "Superheroes"; "Bodybuilding", demonstrating that Bell's artwork is dynamic, often violent, always sexy. The informative text by Nigel Suckling gives much appreciated background information on Bell and her work. -- Midwest Book Review
