Fantasy Art by Various Canadian Artists
Fantasy Art is a type of art that illustrates magical, mystical, mythical or other supernatural themes, ideas, creatures or settings. There can be some overlap with science fiction, horror and other speculative fiction art. There are unique elements not generally found in other forms of speculative fiction art.
The origins of fantasy art can be found in England in the middle of the 19th century. The first book to have illustrated fantasy art was Lewis Carroll’s children’s book from 1865, Alice in Wonderland.
