Fian Arroyo, with his creative mind and quick draw, has been creating award-winning illustrations and character designs for his clients, including many Fortune-500 companies, in the advertising, editorial, toy & game and publishing markets for over 20 years. What at first began as something to do until he found out what he wanted to be when he grew up, has blossomed into a full-time detour from getting a “real job”. Throughout his career, he has had the pleasure of working with companies such as U.S. News And World Report, ABC Television, KFC, Taco Bell, The Los Angeles Times, SC Johnson, The U.S. Postal Service and many more.
Fian’s work has been recognized by prestigious institutions such as; The Society of Illustrators NYC, The Society of Illustrators Los Angeles, Spectrum The Best In Contemporary Fantastic Art, Infected By Art, just to name a few.
Originally from San Juan, Puerto Rico, Fian grew up traveling the world as a U.S. Army brat. He graduated from Texas State University in 1986 with a BFA in Commercial Art then moved to Miami, Florida where he began his freelance illustration career. In 2009 he relocated from Miami Beach to the breath taking mountains of Asheville, North Carolina where he exhibits his art in art galleries there and throughout the south east. He resides in the town of Weaverville, just outside of Asheville, where he is being held hostage by his wife, kids and a mortgage.
