We are back in space this week. True space. Deep space.

Fred Gambino is a freelance concept artist and illustrator from Lea in the United Kingdom. He’s been producing art for over twenty-five years for a variety of media, including film, television, and games.

Below is a sampling of his work. Each image links back to the corresponding gallery. Enjoy!

Why do I like his work? Fred manages to capture both the loneliness and excitement of deep space exploration. That is one of the reasons I love art so much. I’ll never have the opportunity to travel to space. The majority of us won’t ever be that lucky, but artists, be they painters or writers or movie directors, have the ability to take us there nonetheless, and they do it through sheer talent and the power of imagination. And Fred is pretty awesome at doing just that.

Let me know your thoughts in the comments.

Enjoy!
