MaGUMa studied at the School of Architecture in Madrid, but also took the opportunity to learn abroad in Mexico and Portugal during his education.
Although he works digitally, using a Wacom Cintiq graphics tablet and digital painting software, MaGUMa’s work has an increasingly handmade feel.
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.
