Marta Zafra currently works as a freelance illustrator and artist. Her work delicately covers a panorama of varied subject and content. The chosen treatment for her illustrations exhibits a careful solid base in draughtsmanship combined acutely with a subtle intuition for color, mixed both by hand and digitally. Her interest in figuration lies in the detailed depiction of the quotidian through personalized notions of family and the familiar. Whether it be botanical illustrations or the portrayal of animals and people, her decisions for each composition are strangely unique and precise. The familiar is often transformed into the bizarre, the past is often revisited and the real is made unreal.

Bilbao, Spain: “El fin justificado”
“I always thought that the most difficult thing of painting in big formats was too keep the line gesture and the proportions like in the sketches. My sketches have a lot of mistakes and random lines, and somehow I wanted to reproduce that on a wall. The more effects and colors you use on your work, the more you can hide the mistakes and catch the viewer’s attention… when you use the line and not much more, the mistakes can be easily seen…” -Aryz
