Bethany Bickley

Irma Gruenholz

Irma Gruenholz is a three dimensional illustrator based in Madrid, Spain. She creates portraits and still lifes using a variety of materials including modeling clay and plasticine to achieve different effects. Her clay illustrations come in a variety of sizes but we are focusing today on these tiny clay accessories of a whole kitchen, fruits and vegetables.  On Create Zine she says this about her work:

“I find it quite hard to define my style. I suppose that working in three dimensions defines my work somehow. I do not like limitations in a particular style, so I love to explore the possibilities of each project and experiment with new solutions. Regardless of the technique I use, I like the simplicity, both in composition, forms and colour.”

More of her work can be viewed on her website, Facebook, Behance and Instagram.

“My drawings and murals are populated by urban influences, but I combine them with organic forms and lines. My artworks are a combination of improvisation and construction. Spontaneity is very important in my work.”
