ABOUT

Marc Majewski is an award-winning illustrator and picture book maker.

Marc spent his childhood in the Alps, surrounded by lakes and forests, which deeply influenced his work. Nature plays a significant role in his books. It is often depicted as vast, rich, and colorful, always serving as a source of wonder or a refuge. Marc has written and illustrated several books, some of them translated into more than ten languages. Using mostly paint or ink to create his illustrations, his style is characterized by sweeping strokes and bright colors. His work has been displayed in many exhibitions around the world, including the Bologna Children’s Book Fair “Illustrators Exhibition” and the Society of Illustrators “The Original Art”, as well as in newspapers such as Internazionale, Süddeutsche Zeitung, and The Telegraph.

Today, Marc lives and works in Berlin.
