Mar-about me

HELLO

My name is Mar Cerdà and I’m an illustrator based in Barcelona, Spain.

As an illustrator, watercolor painting and paper are the base materials of my work, both used in watercolor prints and in little dioramas made of cut papers.

I work for several publishing houses illustrating Children’s books mostly and I also create little dioramas, displayed in galleries around the world.

My training in cinema and audiovisual, and my specialization in art direction, are facts that have emphasized my fascination with scenography and the treatment of space, I firmly believe that a character can be defined by a space, even if is not present at all.
