Conrad Roset: “I search the beauty the body exudes, I like drawing the female figure.”
Conrad Roset: An Exploration About the Sensuality of the Female Body
The illustrator Conrad Roset portrays the beauty of the female body. He likes drawing delicate and elegant female figures and loves using watercolors and Indian ink. He also likes to experiment with different materials in his work, including acrylics, gouache and pens. His biggest inspiration is the enigmatic Expressionist artist Egon Schiele who profoundly influenced him at a young age. But he started drawing his girlfriend, Clara who is his favorite muse and has been supporting and inspiring him since the beginning.
“There are other muses that give freshness to my work, but you can almost see a part of my girl friend, Clara in each of my drawings.” ― Conrad Roset
Conrad Roset spent his childhood in Terrassa (a small city close to Barcelona), surrounding himself with crayons, paints and colored pencils. His passion for drawing took him to Barcelona, where he received his education and is a professor of illustration at BAU School.

Known for his masterful observation of the female frame, Roset has been trying to find different styles and ways of expression in order to explore the sensuality and fragility of the feminine form. He describes the tender emotions and sexuality with his exquisite contoured line drawings and the color effects caused by watercolors in a beautiful and mysterious way.
His work has been exhibited in galleries and museums, such as the MoMA in Virginia, Spoke Art in San Francisco, London Miles and Show Studio in London, Steven Kasher Gallery in New York, TiposInfames in Madrid and Miscelanea in Barcelona.
