Mágoz: Bold Characters in a Colorful World


Mágoz hails from a small village outside of Barcelona, Spain. His especially balanced compositions are rendered with large spans of color, intentionally left amorphous where it is not altogether necessary.

He works in Photoshop as a person would paint with acrylic or gouache over paper. Painting everything from scratch, he uses a Wacom tablet and scanned sketches. Simplistic, yet bold in form, Mágoz puts across his witty ideas with seemingly little effort. His goal is not to make an extremely elaborate piece, but rather a work that captures the concept of the subjects and their actions.

In the past, he has done work for the Financial Post, Adweek magazine and Crean. To see more of his works check out his website and blog.
