Adara Sanchez Anguiano’s illustrations could be excused for being merely life drawings, sketches or studies for a finished work however, such is her love of form and the movement of the human figure that she has transcended the sketch to create a series of drawings that are complete within themselves. Anguiano’s illustrations are reminiscent of the Egon Shiele; there is the same fluidity, stylization and sexualized energy in her line. However, with Anguiano there are no faces, her focus is entirely on the movement, the action, her figures in a state of undress, eager to free themselves of the tyranny of clothes.
It’s always such a pleasure to come across an artist who revels in the simple pencil and the quality of line. Most of what I’ve been able to find out about her is through her drawings except for the fact that shes from Spain. Here’s a little from her biography:
I’m an illustrator from Sevilla (Spain). I started studying Fine Arts in my born place but the desires of travelling made me spend a year abroad in Antwerp. It was then when I decided to become an illustrator. After that I came back to Spain, to Cuenca this time to finish my degree. Then I got a master in illustration in Barcelona, where I lived for almost two years. Finally, I came back to my beloved hometown, where I spend the days drawing and dreaming while enjoying the sun.
