Illustration/ Art/ Fashion/ People/ Realism
Inés Maestre (Madrid 1992) is a digital painter and illustrator, she currently resides and works in between London and Madrid.
Her studies in pattern design, fashion design and in creative direction at IED Madrid and her experience in different brands such as Pull & Bear, Mira Mikati and Andrea Crews as a designer create an alliance between design, illustration and fashion that is clearly reflected in her work.
The fact that much of her training and work experience is focused on the field of design has led her to apply the same digital tools to her projects in a creative process that is often born with images that result from composing collages and creating new ones. Inés, usually, finishes her pieces using digital tools, as she considers this the way of adapting her style to current trends, to today´s trends where everything is much faster and perishable.
Maestre’s work revolves around the portrait, creating scenes and interpreting situations where there is a human presence that intervenes with the surrounding space. Often this union results in scenes that generate unanswered questions about what is happening.
Always combining her commercial work with her personal pieces, Inés Maestre has held several individual and collective exhibitions and is currently working with galleries in Madrid. Highlighting the inescapable passage of time, post-adolescent youth and the generalized alienation of our society as a common starting point in her personal projects.
To date Inés Maestre has worked on illustration and creative direction projects with brands and publications such as: AD, Architecture and Design, Citroen, Elle, El País, Esquire, Harper’s Bazar, Hello.mr, ID, La Vanguardia, Les Inrocks, L’O ffi ciel Hommes, L’O ffi ciel Russia, Metal Magazine, Mira Mikati, Pull & Bear, Smoda, Tapas, Free Ink, Uterqüe, Vanity Fair, Vein magazine, VICE, Vogue Spain, Vogue Poland, Vogue Russia, Zara.
