Conrad Roset grew up in Terrassa, Spain, among boxes of crayons, felt-tip pens and notebooks; then Barcelona, surrounded by paints, moleskine notebooks, muses, colored pencils, and his gray cat. Drawing has been his passion and a constant feature in his life since childhood when he and his brother drew everything they liked. As he grew older, he draw inspiration from women to create the Muses, his most personal collection.
Roset received his education at the Joso School and at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Barcelona. Thanks to his illustrations spreading through the Internet, he began working for Zara. There, he says, he learnt about his trade, about regularity, and how to study styles of reference illustrators. A year later, he launched himself as a freelance artist, and since then he has worked for different brands, advertising agencies, and publishing companies.
Conrad Roset has exhibited his work in galleries and museums, such as the MOMA in Virginia, Spoke Art in San Francisco, London Miles in London, Tipos Infames in Madrid, and Artevistas and Miscelanea in Barcelona. He is a professor of illustration at Bau, School of Design in Barcelona.
