Marta R. Gustems


Marta R. Gustems (Barcelona 1976)

After a long career as a fashion designer, in 2013 I decided to devote myself exclusively to illustration and painting. At present working in illustrations for books, albums illustrated and press. Originals for art galleries. I collaborate in school projects and workshops for children.

As a writer, I publish a book of poems “A boca de fosc” writing and illustrated by me, published by Editorial Fonoll (2020). The novel "No en cap altre lloc" co-written with Maiol de Gràcia, published by Llibres del Delicte (2022). The novel "Endins" writing by me, published by Pagès Editors (2022). And some articles in the digital magazines Núvol and Catorze, as well as the fantastic tale “Qui”, published on the web Paper de vidre (2020).
