Holi! This is Tongui, an adopted Mancunian illustrator from Malaga, Spain.

During lockdown I started an introspective creative process which led to the MARIFLOWERS series of drawings. With my drawings I hope to inspire a non-sexualised, open-minded and playful representation of humankind, which is based on a dream of acceptance.

"...and their freedom bloomed and there was no shame" - TONGUI

Taking inspiration from different periods and events in life, my style is based on a relationship with my Spanish up-bringing, Roman ancient art and queer culture.
