Victoria Francés was born in 1982. She spent her childhood in the magic forests of Galicia.
The gothic atmosphere she discovered on her first trips to Paris and London influenced the latent romanticism and, mystic quality of her artwork.
While studying Fine Arts at San Carlos University, in Valencia, she made her professional debut: Illustrating covers, doing posters, and other graphic work commissioned through Norma Editorial.
Her first volume of illustrations appeared in print, in 2004, Favole 1: Lágrimas de Piedra (Stone Tears) based on her memories of the cities of Venice and Verona, written, and illustrated by the artist. This work confirmed her internationally as an established, young illustrator at only 22 years of age. Her incredibly successful collection of art prints based on the universe of Favolewas launched soon after by Norma Editorial.
Favole 2: Libérame (Set Me Free), Victoria Francis’s second edition was launched in Spring 2005…. (Following the success of the first edition.)
Angel Wings was released, to coincide with the 23rd Comic Fair in Barcelona. Dressed in the same Goth-inspired clothes worn by many of her characters. She was the star of the book signing, mobilizing hundreds of faithful supporters. Today, Victoria Francés is a phenomenon reaching well beyond the illustration world.
