Illustrator Profile - Maguma

Maguma's bright and tactile illustrations touch on the surreal.

Maguma's bright and tactile illustrations touch on the surreal.

Based in Madrid, MaGUMa is the pseudonym for Spanish artist Marcos Guardiola Martín. MaGUMa’s style will remind you of classic mid-20th century illustration work done in pastel or gouache, and sometimes it looks like a silkscreen print saturated with ink. He strives to give the work a tactile quality, inviting the viewer to try and touch it to feel the texture. Strong concepts and colours are also prevalent in his pictures.
