I can’t think of Marta Anaïs without being in company of her colorful and loving monsters portrayed in oval canvas. :D

Marta Anaïs was born in Madrid, in the bosom of an artist family, a rainy 19 of November from 1979. She remembers to drawing since really little, and on top of that her parents instilled her love for art, especially for artists like El Bosco, Patinir or Brueghel The Elder. She grew up watching and admiring Hammer and Murnau films which marked her personal artwork subject matter.

As it was expected with such good influences, her studies pointed towards those tendencies. So in the year 200 she studied Graphic Design at the Nuevas Profesiones School, and by 2007 she get the Design and Photography degree at Fine Arts in Complutense University of Madrid. Recently she has giving lecures as collaborator teacher at this faculty, and right now she is doing the Thesis to get her doctorate.

But her work as an illustrator dates back to the 2004, when a Publisher contacted her to make some illustrations.
In 2007, and after a three years time working with computer graphics in the papers, she decided to put on one side this facet to get fully involved into her illustrations.

She started then an unstoppable career being part of Publishing companies like Susaeta, Bruño or Libsa , the textile design company Toc de Groc, the paper Publico, and lots more.

Year after year, she designs the posters and some other merchandising for the Horror and Fantasy genre Cryptshow Festival, in which she works actively.

But I want to focus on her more personal artworks.
With no doubt, As I told at the beginning, Murnau cinema and the Hammer horror movies, have left a mark that is reflected on her artworks, besides authors like Moebius, Ralph Bakshi, or Cris Grimly, but sweetened with Burtonians influences.
With them, she proagonized and shared with some other artists several exhibitions.
Here you have some of them, so you can enjoy them. ;)
