Marcos Guardiola

Marcos Guardiola (Maguma) is an architect by training. His foray into illustrations began with a three year stint at El País, one of Spain’s major newspapers, conveying through illustrations political, economic, and social issues. His writing took a major turn in 2015 with a residency at Tara Books in Chennai which resulted in the book The God of Money that illustrates the early texts of Karl Marx. In 2016, he was awarded the Colibrí (humming bird) medal by the Chilean section of the IBBY for his book La Pobre Viejecita (Poor Old Granny), which was also selected in 2017 by the prestigious Bratislava Biennale.
