Like Ghost in the Shell, I’m willing to take temporary breaks on Fine Art to celebrate the work that went into good-looking movies, instead of just good-looking games. And so here we are, with the art of Luc Besson’s Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.

First up is Ben Mauro, an artist we’ve featured a number of times here on Fine Art before, who has spent the last two years working with Besson as art director on the project, and below you’ll find a showcase of his contributions to the film’s look. You can see more of Ben’s work at his personal site.

Also featured is the art of Marc Simonetti, a freelance artist who also spent over a year working directly with Besson (and who we’ve also featured here previously). You can see more of Marc’s art here.

Those two were part of a team of six, and we’ll add more art to this post as more of it is cleared for public release.
