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.
