Judas Thaddeus is represented in many ways because, his genealogy and the facts attributed to his life are confusing. I keep the flame on my forehead, as if that Pentecostal assignment magically became the inspiration for Anohni. This Judas always had a nickname so that no one would confuse him with the other one. The traitor. Like Thaddeus, the brave one or Lebbeo, the one with a tender heart… Can you imagine Anohni Tadea, or Anohni Lebbea? And not only because of the strength and tenderness of her heart, but also because Anohni seems super biblical aunt… Her name, yes, but also those solemn robes she wears and her song that resonates prophetic and ancient. But she is much more than biblical, her priesthood transcends the salvation of man, hers is a cosmic lament, both for the supernovae that explode and the black holes that tirelessly devour the light and for what our eyes reach that fascinating fractal reality that we call nature and that it is but an iota of everything that nature really is.


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.
