New York-based Spanish artist Alicia Martin Lopez combines digital and traditional techniques to create her creepy, surreal creatures. Strange amalgamations of different species, tumerous flesh, patchy fur, deep sea life and alien visions her creatures drift and float through murky, horizonless worlds. Each have a magical quality about them. Enigmatic fairytales and half explained scenes comprise Lopez’s illustrative work. Having studied advertising and worked as a web-designer, she began to develop her traditional illustrations and drawings in 2011 when she got a Fulbright Scholarship to do a master’s degree at the School of Visual Arts in New York. Like rare specimens in victorian display cases or attractions in an aquarium, Lopez’s work transports us in to a mystical and eerie world of gruesome mutants. They have a Ghibli-like quality and are as engaging and charming as they are bizarre and ghostly.
