Description

This Vampira (Naila Nurmi) look fits her perfectly, just like so many other popular vamps and dark ladies. She’s been a magenta-haired punk icon, looked Arthurian and shabby sometimes or like an early Christian other times. She is s busty gore-trash “Russ Meyerlike” heroine sometimes, or a “John Waterslike” star other times; she can be a lusty-vamp, or a backcombed lady with too much make up, or a burlesque dominatrix as well, and many more, but always her characteristic sense of humour, something that I appreciate. But what I appreciate most of all, more even than his good diction, (which is not silly for those of us who are almost deaf), is the fact of being a gay community icon just being defender of the personal and individual freedom.

ROBERTO MAJÁN (Soria, España, 1967)

Roberto Maján is a self-taught artist. He moved to Madrid when he was eighteen and soon began working as an illustrator for various specialised periodicals and publishers, including ExpansiónActualidad EconómicaVogueEl SolEl PaísHealth and Beauty, Anaya, Santillana and Edelvives.

In 2006 he founded Artichoque, a publishing house that released several books illustrated by his own pen, such as Kamasutra (Daniel Gil Editorial Design Award finalist in 2006) and Petronia y la reina bigotuda (shortlisted for the 2007 Visual Prize for Best Children’s Book). That year he received the Fundación Progreso y Cultura Prize for his illustrated book El Diablo y yo, which also won an honourable mention at the Lazarillo Awards.

In his personal artistic production, he parades his consummate skill with brushes and watercolours, depicting mostly human figures with a subtle and adept use of colour and creating textures and glazes to produce an oeuvre of stunning beauty and delicacy. His favourite themes expose and explore human passions, particularly love, sex and food.
