Description

In this altarpiece of 20th century glories, Björk stands out in her own bioluminescence, as it has been installed in the 21st century before it began. Digitization, the Internet, virtual reality, dematerialization … all of this is condensed in his worldview of transparencies and unusual voices that could also be said to be devoid of organic support.

She is like a jellyfish, a form that connote and denote her. She is toxic and asexual, she is not human, and she is eternal. And she is going to tell you little by little, song by song until you do “Gling Gló”. Genius.

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.
