Description

The idea of a rock concert had not been so vehemently substantiated as a pagan mass before Siouxsie and the Banshees, but then Siouxsie officiated that mass as priestess, in a trance yelling with spasmodic howls like a cat giving birth to endless litter of plaster kittens, even better, marble kittens, provoking states of collective ecstasy, but always perfectly dressed and a perfect makeup along the concert. 

Here she is Isis, the most universally worshipped Egyptian goddess. Praise her.

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.
