Hi there*** My name is Akesi Martinez, I am a Spanish illustrator based in London. My work is conceptual, and digital, where I create my own textures with different traditional and printmaking techniques . I like to find the materials expressiveness and the storytelling behind the illustration. My references are mainly all kind of art where the form adapts itself to the content, when the tales and human beliefs were all part of one unit (such as Inuit, native Australian, prehistoric Celtic, and Romanesque art along others). I have experience working with magazines, music covers, murals, showcases, and architectural Illustration. My professional grades include Design and Fine Arts specialized in Illustration (HNC), Master Architect (M2), and Lecoq theatre studies. All of them, and my daily life, influence my work.
