A 2006 graduate of the Faculty of Fine Arts in Barcelona – the city where he has based his studio since 2002 – the Canary Islands-born Oscar Delmar is an artist who has brilliantly updated the traditional techniques for graphic illustration.  His extensive creative output of recent yearsincludes design, sculpture, installation, street art, painting and illustration, presenting a coherent body of work but with an eclectic implementation, adapted unconsciously to the still prevailing postmodern discourse.



Between his “Monsters” series (Anton Chigurh, Tony Soprano, Joseph Fritzl, etc.), his reinterpretations of classic movie posters (Pulp Fiction, Psycho, Seven, etc.) or his “Portraits” series, there is an apparent jump in techniques used, but undoubtedly the same personal concerns, analysis and interpretation of issues that are important to his life: the cinema, music and generational angst.  We say “apparent” because his modus operandi is always the same: starting from traditional techniques, including craft (cardboard, wires, bulbs, ink, watercolours, pencil, scissors, glue, cutter, marker etc.) he produces a work sifted through modern technology (digital cameras, scanners, design software etc.) His distinguishing characteristic is an intuitive capacity to connect past and future in a work of art of today.



His work is arousing interest in places as far apart as the US, the Netherlands and Russia – a poster commissioned for a new Hollywood television series and material produced for various European books are recent examples of the growing demand for his illustrations.
