Sugarflesh is an artistic joint project developed by the illustrators Liran Szeiman and Martin de Diego Sádaba. Their creative strengths and styles have been unified to give birth to a special world of dark cuteness. A universe with a singular sensitivity and a huge emotional depth, where weird and delicate beings come to life, creating intense messages for the child we carry inside, taken from the dreams and nightmares of the sons of a technical generation. Unique images and exclusive items that are looking for a place within the heart of the most special public…

Sugarflesh is an artistic joint project that was born during Martin’s & Liran’s first collab “technification“. They discovered that their collaborative style was a clear new style by itself, different to their personal styles and influences, and they saw a clear work path they think was very interesting and pushed them to continue exploring that path.
Sugarflesh is a carnival of delicate souls through a dreamed valley of shadows and lights, a mechanical heart carved in sweet porcelain, child wispers in the dark, inocence, death, love and cuteness, all mixed up in a twisted mind.
For them the opinion of the people that enjoy their work is very important, because in every collaboration there is always a confrontation of forces and personal interpretations, and they love to let others participate with their own thoughts about their work and to explore different paths guided by those others visions. For that reason they started a small social experiment parallel to their work. If you like their art, they would like to invite you to join their facebook page where they will publish a weekly series of different sketches where you will be able to vote what’s the next one you like to see finished.
