Elle:
When your interest for digital art and illustration began?

Maruka Caleis:

I´ve been interested in drawing since I can remember.. I won my first contest at age of five! my parents have always encouraged my interest in beauty and aesthetic, they were very creative people, with a very special and defined taste in Arts and Design.

I grew up loving the work of great illustrators like Norman Rockwell, Gruau, Leyendecker, Isao Yajima .. but my particular interest in digital art and contemporary illustration came after a moment of vital catharsis, about three years ago.

Elle:
Please tell us more about your art and design background and what made you become an artist and designer?

Maruka Caleis:

I wanted to study Fine Arts since when I was small, but I was trained in Law and spent lot of years without picking up a pencil. I thought it was too late to think about a creative career, but my interest in transpersonal psychology and active meditation took me back to drawing. Now it has become essential part of my life.

Elle:
How did your style develop? Your work is full of creativity. Where does your inspiration come from? What influences you and your work?

Maruka Caleis:

I like to think my style is definitive yet to come, I feel I need to evolve more to achieve a style “ very me“. I want to develop a a stylized figuration full of references of all that inspires my particular universe. Fashion, interior Design, avant-garde Art, Art decó…are some of the themes and languages usually found in the illustrations. My works are hand-made with many materials: pencils, watercolors and paper cuts, an amalgam of techniques that allow you to identify different textures and volumes. In fact, each picture element has a protagonist who gives strength to the composition.. they are graphical pieces where nostalgic and contemporary experience are encouraging playful and full of twists.

Elle:
What are your plans for the future?

Maruka Caleis:

The truth is that I used the illustration to recover an essential welfare, and every time I realized that I was taking me for more ambitious and egocentric interests, or when I have been overwhelmed by the tough competition of this world, I have felt that it is not my way and needed to stop. Definitely I do not want that to influence me .. I take the artistic facet without pressure, and I do not think in goals as an exhibition, a big collaboration or a special editorial, I focus on living the dream of creating with my hands again. What I´ll get above it will be welcome, of course, but with no pretense, just enjoying the journey, evolution and process.
