Marcos Torres

Marcos Torres, graphic artist born in Ibiza in 1973 and qualified in advertising drawing, graphic design and photography.
His professional career started in 1994, as he finished his latest studies, working in many design studios until he established himself as an independent artist in 1999.
In these three T-shirt thematic collections, created and cared one by one from its design until its printing as little artistic pieces, the artist pours his personal visual universe, which is characterized by a strong link with the music world as well as the Pop mythology, its vibrant colours and the passion they achieve communicating the spectator.
The artist’s T-shirt collections have an extremely loyal and enthusiastic public, thanks to whom every new collection has become a success, making the T-shirts constantly sold out.
Firm defender of the popular character of art, the artist likes to continuously break the border between art and design, therefore his work can be found either in artistic screenprintings or in T-shirts. His screenprints collections with limited and numbered pieces have been shown in several exhibitions in Ibiza, Madrid, Brighton, Santiago, Palma de Majorca and they can also be found in the virtual exhibition of marcostorres.com.
In his screenprints the artist exhibits a personal and deliberately fantastic world, dominated by the cult of colour and the visual impact.
Through an style which tries to be powerful and sensual, his characters seem to always find the appropriate way to captivate the spectator and to attract him towards the inside of the work. At the same time, the artist has been diversifying his work by designing record covers (Magic Bus, Peter Colours, Zinedines, Gigolo Aunts), logotypes (Bip-Bip Records, El Agente Naranja…), creating the image of musical events (Euroyeyé, October In rain, This is the Modern World…), book covers (Violeta en el Cielo con Diamantes) and signing the design of the latest official T-shirts of the Guggenheim Museum of Bilbao.
The work of Marcos Torres has been the object of TV reports in programmes like Cuatrosfera (Cuatro), Ipop (La 2) or Básico (Telemadrid), as well as interviews and articles in Mondosonoro, Tendencias, FHM, Alterego, El Mundo, Lamilk, and appearances in Vogue, Rolling Stone, Marie Claire, etc..
