Isidro Ferrer began his career as a stage actor in Madrid, Spain. After an accident
and long rehabilition, Isidro became an illustrator and graphic designer. He has
designed book covers, posters, wine labels, sculptural found objects, and he has
created tile design for public works. His clients include Canal + , El Pais,
Santillana, Volkswagen, and the Centro Dramático Nacional. He has won many
awards for his work including the National Award for children’s illustration from
Spain’s Ministry of Education and Culture (2006).
Isidro’s work often uses three-dimensional objects re-imagined and combined
with traditional media to take on a new meaning. Textures play a significant role in
his compositions and he is no stranger to surrealism. I love the simplicity and
high drama of his work, and the clever elegance of his ideas.
