Rene Arreola is an artist based in Monterey, California. His artwork blends elements of comic book and fantasy art into creative, visual storytelling. His ideas and subject matter focus mostly on personal work, placing the human form and spirit within the context of imaginative realism. He works full-time as a creative, whether he is drawing, painting, or designing projects and commissions for clients. When he’s not working with clients, he is creating his own art and stories for his independent creation The Realm Ethereal.
For fun, he enjoys dancing West Coast Swing. Rene and his wife both dance West Coast Swing socially and sometimes competitively. They also teach West Coast Swing. Which, since the start of the COVID19 pandemic, has been not very much.

I feel the art I create is my way of expressing the cosmic grandeur that surrounds us all. My work often revolves around the fantastic and imaginary.
The characters and worlds I am creating today evoke in me the same feelings I had when I was a kid growing up reading comic books: excitement, wonder, and inspiration.
I am endlessly fascinated by form, space, and composition in art. As a storyteller, I aim to contribute back to the cosmic grandeur. Sharing so others may experience the same excitement, wonder, and inspiration is the ultimate goal.
