Luis Royo has made the myth of “beauty and the beast” his principal theme, effortlessly moving from horror to the lyrical. Whatever the theme, his characters waltz effortlessly between epic and erotic. The subject´s flesh is overlaid with a defiant and threatening tone, marking them more exciting. As Royo knows all too well, when the dark ghost of death looms over the hero, the suggestion of sex becomes more intense.

When studying his characters, one notices that he places the subject on the border of tragedy, where they can shine more brilliantly. Their frozen position anticipates a destiny as attractive as it is cruel. Clutching their weapon, they await the next attack. Their intensity and the tautness of their muscles make them even more beautiful and dramatic. In the blink of an eye they can disappear, having been devoured by the danger that encircles them. But the immediate future doesn´t interest Royo. He portrays that penultimate moment, when the inner soul of the hero is revealed.

"In a place where the creatures guarding the daughter of the Devil appear and drool. On the balcony where we always get those exterior images that seem insignificant".

- Luis Royo

"In fantasy there are many worlds, many more than in the constellation universe of reality, which is that, although they remain in time, they do not occupy a place." They unfold with a twinkling of an eye and retreat with a breath of anguish, arising from desire and disappearing through the hole of need ".
