Illustrations by Berto Martínez
Impressive work by Barcelona-based illustrator Berto Martínez.
“Born in Barcelona in 1973, Berto Martínez is a versatile illustrator who is inspired by the impressive modernist buildings around his house, Renaissance drawings, modernist affiche artists, twentieth century illustrators like Patrick Nagel, modern artists like Lucien Freud, and photographers such as Richard Avedon and Diane Arbus.
As a child, he loved illustration because of its powerful way of communicating; today, it’s a vocational affair. He is primarily an autodidact and enjoys pushing the boundaries between text and figure, as well as exploring the psychological dimension of portraits.”Illustration Posted on January 25, 2013
