My Bio

Fabio Pastori has always considered “visual” as the most effective communicating art.

In his early years, working in the advertising field, his illustrations were so impacting that his campaigns worked even with not-so-good head-lines.

In the 1980’s, he began working in Dinosauria and his style kept its strong character, as evident in hazardous prospectives, in extreme three-dimensionality and especially in the courageous use of strong and vivid colors.

At that time, no one had ever illustrated dinosaurs as he did – not only his paintings seemed to have a soul, but, anticipating the times, these were extremely colorful and dynamic, just like the scientific field is learning to consider them nowadays – with a modern insight, furtherly revolutionized by up-to-date studies.

Keeping his strong taste for aesthetic, Fabio today is among the best known paleoartists, yet not just popular. Modifica

Fabio Pastori has long believed that the most effective communication strategies are visual.

In those days, no one was illustrating dinosaurs the way Pastori did. In making his creatures both colorful and dynamic,
