Magoz: Simplicity and Conceptual Value

December 13, 2012

'Playful metaphors and a concise visual style help Spanish illustrator, Mágoz put across his witty ideas with seemingly little effort. However, the stripped-down nature of his work with it’s limited palette and sparing amount of elements within an image is something he probably works the hardest towards. Clever design makes Mágoz’ work a joy to look at, and his narratives a pleasure to read.

As well as his knack for thoughtful imagery, we like Mágoz’ play with shape and space. His uniquely proportioned figures are absorbed into large masses of colour, intentionally undefined where it is not totally essential. Below, he talks about how uses of negative space like this are part of his approach to his work and what is important to him.'
