Enric Torres-Prat

Enric Torres-Prat, identified in his earlier career as Enrich and credited on his illustration work simply as Enric, is known for his wonderful cover paintings and beautiful renderings of fine art. He considers his work a combination of academic draftsmanship and strong narrative qualities. He especially likes to concentrate on the way human skin responds visually to light, projecting a luminous quality that portrays how it both reflects and absorbs light.

Born in Barcelona, Spain, Enric studied painting with the prestigious masters of his time. He traveled throughout Europe and the United States, immersing himself in the more romantic aspects of figurative painting. As a "student of the Masters," his classrooms were the world's most important museums and galleries, including El Prado, the Louvre, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and the British Museum. But it was the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam that influenced him the most. There, Enric was captivated by the paintings of Rembrandt, especially the dark and golden colors that distinguish the works of this great painter.

While still in his early 20s, Enric began his professional career as a freelance artist for a prestigious commercial art agency, Selecciones Illustradas. He quickly established an industry-wide reputation for creating award-winning imagery and worked for Warren Publications on several titles, most notably "VAMPIRELLA." Over the course of his career, he has illustrated such iconic characters and franchises as Tarzan, King Kong, "STAR WARS," "Star Trek," Vampirella, Red Sonja, and many others. He has contributed hundreds of covers for paperbacks and magazines produced by noted publishing houses like Bantam Books, Dell, Signet Books, Fawcett, Harlequin, Avon, Corgi, Readers Digest, and Ace Books. His cover work has been published worldwide and has spanned the genres of fantasy, science fiction, gothic horror/suspense, romance, and westerns.
