Taking inspiration from graphic design and art deco motifs, illustrator María Caleis creates artistic renditions of fashion culture. Her juxtapositions between unusual objects with femme fatale-like models is awe-inspiring and magnificent.
Caleis renders her subjects with meticulous detail, using fine lines and etchings to create volume and textures. Glimpses and splashes of color add vibrancy and give her work a graphic ambiance. Her style brings together the decorative approach of fashion illustration with the imaginative quality of fine art. Text and typography have been laid overtop, adding to the illustrative approach that is often seen in magazines and publications.
Based out of Spain, artist María Caleis has worked with a number of publications including ETC. Magazine and Paulette Magazine.
