Ricardo Fumanal


Gifted with an exquisitely refined technique and a distinctive approach, Ricardo Fumanal is a household name of fashion illustration who is not afraid of pushing boundaries.

Hailing from rural Spain, Ricardo has travelled across Europe to develop his art: first studying graphic design in Barcelona, he then proceeded to focus on hand-drawn design and digital illustration, landing his long-standing collaboration with leading Spanish publication, El Mundo. 

As his career developed between Barcelona and Madrid, Ricardo moved to London where the output of his work grew exponentially. He began working with creative agencies and publications on advertising campaigns and editorial projects as well as collaborating with highly regarded fashion brands on special designs for garments and accessories. The city also brought Ricardo his first foray into the fine art world, working with acclaimed galleries on original works and prints.

Ricardo’s work is renown for its hyper-realistic depictions with precise line work and tactile shading contrasted with surreal and unexpected compositions with surprising use of color. Ricardo works in ink, pencil, markers and watercolour, as well as uses digital illustration to create collages and manipulations. His most recent work consists of illustrations that transform into digital animations.   

Currently, Ricardo spends his time between Barcelona, London and Paris.
