Victor Maury is a French illustrator working as a splash artist at Riot Games. His work has received many honours and awards including Spectrum Rising Star Award and Society of Illustrators West Silver Award.
Born in France, Maury moved to America when he was seven-years-old. He and his family would regularly return to France to visit the countryside and the Pyrenees. These trips stayed with Maury, influencing his work. He dedicated six years to studying art, completing two Bachelor degrees. The first in ‘Animation’ at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, followed by ‘Animation and Illustration’ at Ringling School of Art and Design.
Before he graduated, Maury was already freelancing for Wizards of the Coast, Fantasy Flight Games, and Merlino Entertainment’s Heroes’ Tale card game. Now, living in California, Maury is part of Riot games’ League of Legends art team.
Maury enjoys telling stories and is known for his larger than life fantasy characters. His figures dominate the frame and demand the viewer’s attention. He is excellent at capturing the warmth and freshness of a clear day just as easily as the direness and foreboding of hellish landscapes.
