Marta Zafra

Marta Zafra is an illustrator with a background in Fine Arts who has found in drawing a fundamental means to expressing her ideas and feelings, her vision of life.

In Marta’s work, the accuracy of detail, the precision and cleanliness of the fine delicate line, is key. In her compositions, each of the elements represented is in particular balance with the rest, none are placed at random. All are the result of deep and concentrated observation. Marta selects only the relevant and leaves the rest of the composition space empty of information. Always achieving the protagonism of the subject portrayed.

Marta loves taking the risk of doing something new, of experimenting and exploring other ways of doing things. She has the particular skill of taking each new technique or subject to her personal terrain.
