A great Facebook page created by Waënelin and devoted primarily to Viggo's art endeavors.
"The purpose of this page is to promote VM work, basically; and, incidentally, to meet nice people interested in arts.
Being well aware of copyright issues, I'm trying to keep the fairest balance I can between promotion and "unrevealing"; posting only artworks that can already be found on the net, not posting texts in whole, etc... and adding links to Perceval Press every time I can. The idea is really to promote his art and make Viggo's fans, old and new, purchase his books and music. It seems to work, as we already had feedback from someone who purchased a book thanks to the page, and it's growing so fast!"
If you want a treat, visit this well put together site that has some of the best Viggo resources and collections on the internet. Although this site has not been updated since 2008, there seems to be hope that during the end of 2012 it may be active again.
"Because of course it's not about the pretty face or the trim body. Sure, Viggo is handsome, but so are thousands of other men. I live in a town with a large population of semi-professional athletes (mostly bicyclists and whitewater kayakers), and on hot summer days they're cute in their little shorts but that sort of thrill is short-lived. Viggo is interesting because he's got integrity and intelligence and a sense of humor but mostly because he passionately pursues what he's interested in. That's what makes him attractive. I think maybe all of us lusting after this Viggo fantasy are really looking for something more real in our lives but we don't know how to find it directly so we get it vicariously by following him.
So what's my excuse for spending all this time creating a Viggo fan site so that I can tell the world how I need to spend less time mooning about Viggo and more time being a creative and active force in the universe? That's easy -- designing and developing web sites is my favorite creative outlet. Just think of this as therapy. :-)"
Viggo's publishing house. The place to buy all of Viggo's books. Lots of interesting info on their Exhibitions & Events and We Recommend pages.
JoannaP's delightfully different site devoted to the art of Viggo Mortensen. Fun and resourceful. The wonderful sketch of Viggo on the Home Page is reason enough to check it out.
This mainstay Viggo community has been around as long as I can remember and is a full service Viggo site with news, gallery, and a complete index of Viggo history and resources. It has a lively forum powered by Yuku. You will have to register to participate.
"We are a group of individuals, mainly women, with a few enlightened men, who admire Viggo Mortensen. We are avid supporters of the man and his work. Our own backgrounds are extremely varied. The language of this site is English. Non-native speakers are welcome, we will help you if you need it! The site is open to all, on the principle that we like to share information on Viggo's work and activities."
The Viggo Mortensen page at starpulse.com is fast becoming a great quick resource for information on Viggo and his endeavors. Some nice videos, plus a good filmography and discography listing. Great for quick research.
