Luis Royo was born in 1954 in Olalla, a small town in Teruel. In 1972 he starts painting and exhibiting in various forums. In 1978 he begins his career as a comic-book artist. In 1983 he goes to illustration, where he will harvest his greatest successes.

In 1992 his first book, Women, appears, followed by Malefic (1994), Secrets (1996), III Millenium (1998), Dreams (1999), Prohibited Book (1999), Evolution (2001), Prohibition Book 2 (2001), Conceptions I (2002), Visions (2003), Prohibited Book 3 (2003), Conceptions II (2003), Prohibited Sketchbook (2004), Fantastic Art (2004), The Labyrinth Tarot (2004), and Conceptions III (2005). To these titles we must add the publication of six series of collector cards, six portfolios, posters, and two packs of Tarot cards, The Black Tarot and The Labyrinth Tarot.

The growing popularity of his pictures has allowed us to find them as well in postcards, calendars, packs of cards, T-shirts, CD jackets, videogames, and even on some sculptures.
