Bio

Gabriel Moreno is an artist based in Madrid, Spain. He has been chosen as one of the hundred most influential illustrators in the world of advertising over the past decade by the publication 100 Illustrators by Taschen and was featured on the cover of Illustration Now! 4. He has also created covers for the Wall Street Journal and is the only illustrator to ever make the cover for the Los Angeles Times. Moreno’s work is featured regularly in the Wall Street Journal, Squire London, GQ USA, The Country Weekly, Sunday Times and Rolling Stone.

Although he is best known for his work as an illustrator in advertising, where his experience and reach is remarkable (campaigns of iconic brands such as Nike USA, Rolex, Victoria’s Secret, Universal Music or Coca-Cola), in the last few years he has also successfully developed his personal line of art.

Read full bio


His pieces make striking statements about female beauty through graphic and elegant images. His works are usually comprised of flowing and precise fine black lines, over which he deploys shocks of colour accenting on clothing, faces, or environments. He uses dramatic gradients of colours and multiple layers that emerge from the images and involvement of the figures.  In order to fulfil his vision, he works with etching and he uses multiple artistic mediums and tools such as pencil, ink, marker, water-colour, and digital art.
