Nekro was born in O Grove, Spain and currently lives in Madrid. As an illustrator and  digital artist he specializes in the darker side of fantasy. Many of his images are created with a restraint or selective use of color to great effect.

While the bulk of his work is commissioned cover art, he is also a published author. His first illustrated book, 13 Inches, was published in 2011 and a sequel Skeleton Key will be released in early 2014.
