About Galen Valle and the Art
Thanks for visiting. I’m an artist specializing (mostly) in digital mixed media, digital paintings, illustrations, and photo manipulations. My influence is mostly early to mid 20th century modern art. I often use elements of the styles of that period to create contemporary art using present-day subject matter and media. The goal is to to build bridges between past and present art styles and evoke moods and feelings that are relevant to life today – but that also don’t forget the past.
My artwork mostly explores people and emotions with solitude as an often recurring theme. The subjects range from the obvious to the opaque, the world is often dystopian, the characters are slightly damaged – and the moods are usually dark with an overtone of skeptical optimism. There is a lot of art on this site – and most is for sale as open edition art prints and framed art. Some are also available as gallery goods, t-shirts and other things -so there should be something here for just about anyone who wants to get something special for someone special.
Art Services and Commissions
Commissioned work includes custom portraits, book covers, art for children, posters, book illustrations, album cover art, prop art & set dressing artwork for films and television – as well as various other artwork for both digital and print use.
I’m very experienced at creating both print and digital graphics. I can create fully print-ready book covers to meet any print specifications and digital book covers in all required formats. Other projects could be posters, cards, album cover art, artwork for interior designers, prop/set dressing art for films and television and also custom portraits and commissioned art created to your specifications. Looking around at the artwork on this site will give you a good idea of my style(s).
Interior designers and corporate art buyers for large-scale projects can but my prints at trade prices at DesignerPrints.com. You can also contact me here for information on commissioned custom art for your project.
Book Cover Design
The art on this site is mostly formatted for art prints, but I can modify most of it into unique book covers (both digital and print) that will help your book stand out in those long lists of best selling book titles. I’m an avid reader and I know how much a great cover can help sales (and also how much a bad cover can hurt them) – so if there is any art on on this site that you think would make the perfect cover for you, get in touch and we’ll see what we can come up with.
Open-edition Prints and other Products
Open Edition Prints. There are ‘buy print’ buttons below every image that take you to several print-on-demand galleries that feature my artwork. You can buy very nice gallery framed art prints and from my Society6 gallery (there are also a few other products such as iPhone cases, pillows etc.) , my Redbubble Gallery and also my ArtistsWebsites gallery. You can buy beautiful art prints on eco-friendly sustainably sourced wood at PrintsonWood.com that make fantastic gifts. You can also have a look at my Art Shop where I have most of my open edition prints for sale.
I’ll be adding signed and numbered limited edition prints soon – and if you’re interested in signed copies of any of my open edition prints you can get in touch via my contact form.
Where to find Galen Valle online
Follow me on Twitter. I’m active on Twitter and most of my activity is just joking around and chatting with people. Continuous ‘buy my work’ tweets by others annoy me and I don’t do it myself.
Like my Facebook page. Like it, comment on it, and keep it going. It needs you. Facebook pages tend to die a slow death if people don’t interact with them.
Please help spread the word. Even with all the above, most of my business comes from good ‘ole word of mouth. Nothing beats it and nothing ever will. That’s it. That’s me. Thanks very much for reading.
