Artist in my 40s, I have studied in an art academy in Belgium in 1990. My influences are originally American comics such as Marvel or DC Comics, and I also have much interest in very different painters such as Da Vinci, MichelAngelo, George de La Tour, Braque or Dali, to name a few.
Computers have quickly transformed my abilities towards more global and more contemporary influences, with a special interest in Pop art and its 2014 versions, such as Patrice Murciano, Francoise Nelly or David Walker. As i was attracted by clothes that change the light, such as leather, vinyle, rubber and latex.
It was obvious that my creations would be inspired by pictures and artwork from the fetish world. And then... I was into it!
Sometimes, a creative desire attracts me about a picture found on the internet and I need to re create, to borrow this picture and put my style and vision into it. I don't have time to ask the picture's author about the credit and copyright but I try as much as I can to note the contributors to these creations. If one of your pictures is in this situation (not credited) and that you dislike my graphic style, please feel free to mail me and I'll suppress the creation from this website and from social networks.

"Un Artiste talentueux qui gagne a être Connu et Reconnu!!!
As soon as I saw his amazing digital artworks, I knew I wanted them for monthly Club RUB flyers. Over the last 20 years I have picked the most talented photographers and artists. Each year two talents and two sets of six. So six were commissioned and each one was stunning.
Valerian, ein großartiger Künstler, der aus den tollen Fotos von etlichen Latexfetischisten und Models, noch bessere Artworks zaubert. Sie bestechen durch Ideenreichtum, Fantasie und sorgen immer für Lächeln und Staunen, auf den Gesichtern der Fetischisten. Pure Hingabe und Passion. Danke für deine wunderbare Kunst.
I am so honored to have my images recreated and manipulated by Valerian's limitless talent, poise, and creativity. His result is unique imagery artwork well worth framing and display. I have multiple pieces of his one of a kind art work hanging throughout my home. I truly, thoroughly enjoy seeing them in my view point each day!
Once I discovered the erotic sci-fi and latex world of Valerian I was keen to do a feature on him on Massad Magazine – and I as well as our readers were blown away by his mindboggling and fantastic art. He is a fantastic Photoshop artist but also knows exactly how to capture the attention and take you on a journey into a world beyond belief. One of our favourite artists – and as a person, despite all raving reviews of his work, a modest and forthcoming man, always ready to give you a hand and help somebody out.
I love Valerian's work! It is wonderful to see what he can do with a photo! I admire his work in the first place because it is fetish art. There are not so many artists who choose the fetish style.
I like to see how he changes the photos. I can imagine that many hours of work are needed to make this art.
He also made an artwork from me, from a picture on the beach. I always feel very honored when artists want me as a model.
I love the atmosphere in this work. It got a nice place in my home.
Ce que j'aime tout particulièrement dans le travail de Valérian, c'est cette capacité à transformer une photo en une composition qui lui est propre, un univers à la fois sensuel et onirique qui se marie tellement bien avec l'esthétique fetichiste.
