Joseph Bellofatto
The artist currently resides outside Raleigh, NC. His preferred Mediums are oil paints and graphite, but will dabble in others when required. His favorite era of art is the 19th century and is most inspired by the Pre-Raphaelites. His current work reflects that but with a fantasy twist, due to a focus on mythological stories and creatures.

He began his art career doing illustration work for small to midsized publications, both interior B&W and color covers.  During that time he was selected to participate in the art shows for numerous literary conventions in fandom from east to west  (Lunacon to LAcon) and all points in-between; as an invited art guest and winner of numerous art show awards.

Later he decided leave illustration and move into fine art crafting work in the  ‘Imaginative Realism’ genre. Since then his work has appeared in art galleries from coast to coast, had work juried three times into the Art Renewal  Center’s Annual  Salon competition, several in The Infected By Art annual art competition, Oil Painters Of America’s regional and national shows and the same for the International Guild of Realism. He has also been nominated three times for a Chesley award.

Over the past several years the artist has become a fixture at a number of Fandom conventions east of the Mississippi from Kansas City (Spectrum Live!), To Atlanta (Dragoncon) to Reading (Illuxcon) to
