Fabio Pastori has long believed that the most effective communication strategies are visual.
When he worked in advertising as a young man, his designs and illustrations were so powerful that PR campaigns functioned even in the absence of an equally effective text.
When Pastori began to apply himself to drawing the Dinosauria in the ‘80s, his striking stylistic personality made itself felt in his audacious perspectives,
extreme three-dimensionality and, in particular, in his daring use of bright, vivid colors. In those days, no one was illustrating dinosaurs the way Pastori did.
In making his creatures both colorful and dynamic, Pastori seemed to endow them with a soul. More than that, his illustrations were ahead of their time: Today, however,
in perspectives continually transformed by new scientific findings, the world is coming to see dinosaurs just as he always has.
Distinctive in his sense of aesthetic beauty, Pastori is among the most accomplished of modern paleoartists.
