Description

Those who would have liked to be present at the concert that The Doors offered in Miami in 1969 where Jim masturbated on stage, will like to see him here in the task, so fashionable at the time, to expand his senses. It is not a gratuitous nude, I swear.

For Jim, the body that was the dark night of his restless atman could free its hostage by exacerbating the senses in sexual intercourse and turning orgasm, la petite morte, into an enlightening, mystical experience. And that’s how Jim toiled in his task, training his senses as doors of consciousness in that vital and artistic bet too, determined to share the place where Rimbaud, Verlaine, Artaud and others of that ilk settled.

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.
