Description

I’ve spent so many hours with Marc Almond’s music that it would be impossible for me not to pay tribute to him here. Soft Cell’s “Last Night in Sodom” never fails to send me into an altered state. And how he sings! His solo album “Stories of Johnny” is not so sordid, it’s more about hopeless love.

His voice caresses like the anemones with which I adorn him in this picture of Dolorosa.

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.
