Gabriel Moreno is a Spanish Illustrator, his pieces make striking statements about female beauty through graphic and elegant images.
Moreno's works are usually comprised of flowing and precise fine black lines, over which he deploys shocks of color accenting on clothing, faces, or environments. He uses dramatic gradients of colors and multiple layers that emerge from the images and involve the figures. .
I first saw one of Moreno's pieces at the Affordable Art Fair and snapped a picture (lead image above) It has been the lock screen on my phone ever since. I love the way he captures women and the shocks of colour that appear on the page.
He has been chosen as one of the hundred most influential illustrators in the world of advertising over the past decade by the publication 100 Illustrators by Taschen and was featured on the cover of Illustration Now! 4. He has also created covers for the Wall Street Journal and is the only illustrator to ever make the cover for the Los Angeles Times. Moreno’s work has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, Squire London, GQ USA, The Country Weekly, Sunday Times and Rolling Stone.
