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.
