Arantza was born in Spain and has lived on the Spanish Mediterranean coast since childhood. Her work has graced the covers of many novels, comic books and children's stories. Her gothic images are reminiscent of works by the best of Spain's many other acclaimed dark fantasy artists of decades past.
Arantza Sestayo describes the art for which she is best known as 'pure fantasy with a touch of eroticism'.
"I love playing with the tones of the flesh. With shades of the real meat. Not with those who are sometimes out there: wizened fur, fake, not excite anyone. The skin seems pure object of desire. And I like that mix elegance with tonal Shines a silk with the feel of velvet. I always try to combine the texture of the body with violet hues, fuchsia. Not forgetting, ever, the game offers carmine red".
