Dramatic gradients of colors and multiple layers Artwork
Madrid-based artist Gabriel Moreno works as illustrator in advertising. His pieces make striking statements about female beauty through graphic and elegant images. He started his career in 2007 when he uploaded his portfolio for the first time online. In only a few months, he was selected as one of 20 new talents of illustration by Computers Arts Magazine. From then on he has made numerous commissioned advertisement works, becoming a renowned artist in the field of illustration.
His pieces make striking statements about female beauty through graphic and elegant images. His works are usually comprised of flowing and precise fine black lines, over which he deploys shocks of colour accenting on clothing, faces, or environments.
He uses dramatic gradients of colours and multiple layers that emerge from the images and involvement of the figures. In order to fulfil his vision, he works with etching and he uses multiple artistic mediums and tools such as pencil, ink, marker, water-colour, and digital art.
Although he is best known for his work as an illustrator in advertising, where his experience and reach is remarkable (campaigns of iconic brands such as Nike USA, Rolex, Victoria’s Secret, Universal Music or Coca-Cola), in the last few years he has also successfully developed his personal line of art.

“It’s quite difficult to say who has influenced my work. Basically everything I see and everything I read can have its place in my work whether that be consciously or unconsciously. There are many artists that I admire but I am not able to quite put a finger on who has influenced me more than another. I can say that the superheroes of Marvel comics have had their impact, as well as artists such as Milo Manara, Gustav Klimt, Alphonse Mucha or Robert Mortherwell.”
