When I look at Kaluta's artwork for comic book covers the thing that always strikes me is that the work doesn't look like that of a comic book artist. It looks like art created by someone living out of the continuum of time and history. I don't really know how to describe it. But it doesn't look like traditional comic book cover artwork. Kaluta's work changes over time and crystalizes into its own distinct identity. That's a natural phenomenon. The work starts off with an ethereal quality and becomes even more ethereal. The lines get more delicate and brittle, the color washes come to the fore and give the artwork almost a stained glass look. While someone with a similar touch like Alphonse Mucha's work looks sturdy, Kaluta's work looks like it would shatter under a hard gaze.
