Dellorco

A native of Los Angeles, Dellorco grew up in the Hollywood Hills, amidst movie stars, famous musicians, artists, and filmmakers in the 1970’s. For the past 15 years, Chris has been widely considered one of Disney’s top illustrators for print advertising, specializing in Home Video packaging. His covers range from the award winning “The Lion King”, to the recent “Lilo and Stich” and everything in between. If you own one of Disney’s animated titles on VHS or DVD, Dellorco probably did the cover.

In the entertainment field, he has illustrated numerous movie posters, which include “Conan the Barbarian”, “Revenge of the Nerds”, “Coming to America”, “The Marrying Man”, “The Firm”, and others. He received the Silver Medal award from the influential Key Art Awards for the poster “Eating Raoul”, First Place for his work on “Who Framed Roger Rabbit”, Second Place for “Snow White”, and Finalist for “Aladdin-Prince of Thieves”. He also was a finalist for the prestigious Belding award. He has also shown his artwork for many years in the Society of Illustrators Annual West Coast Exhibit winning Best of Show in ’91 and ‘95. He also was recognized with a Lifetime Achievement Award from Artist’s For A Better World.

Dellorco’s oil paintings exhibit near photo realism, yet still capture a certain level of artistic beauty and sensuality. Generally, they depict the female figure, shrouded in richly colored fabrics, while dramatically set against Old World European architecture. Often the architecture represents a historically significant European landmark, such as Versailles or the Pantheon. Each painting reveals a subtle, yet provocative story contrasting human beauty and frailty with the solidity and strength of mankind’s greatest monuments. He was listed among “50 Top Artists for 2012” by Art Business News.

Client list includes: James Cameron (director/Titanic), Michael Jackson, Prince Abdul of Saudi Arabia, Mathew Calamari (COO/Trump Group)
