Marcos Isamat

Barcelona, 1965

Marcos Isamat studied biology at the University of Edinburgh and obtained his PhD in Molecular Genetics from the University of Cambridge. He held research positions in the UK, France and Spain until 2003. His career in drawing and painting began long before his university days. Precocious draftsman, poster designer and illustrator in several publications, Isamat first exhibited his work on the neglected departmental museums of Cambridge University in 1991.

His work has been subsequently shown in Barcelona, Bologna, Gerona, Madrid, Valladolid and international art fairs in Europe. He has worked extensively on landscapes, portraits, objects and nature. He is the creator of the 3D paper Meninas of the El Prado Museum and has collaborated with Spanish TV as a portrait artist and with Voxprima as a children’s book illustrator. For the last 30 years he has concentrated on pencil drawing, the simplest artist’s tool of infinite potential.

The pencil drawings of Marcos Isamat reflect the size, textures and movements of his personal way of observing common, everyday images. His work reproduces natural geometries, symmetries, immensities or kinetics inherent to the subject observed and the patterns defined, in search of the essence of elegance of the object represented
