Escribir un poema es como atrapar un pez

Commissioned | New Talent

Why did you make this work:
Create 12 visuals illustrating the collection of poems from the Portuguese writer Adília Lopes

How was the illustration used:
in a book

How did you make this work:
I wanted to highlight the femininity, sexuality and simplicity of the universe that Adilia presents to us. I used the codes I perceived reading her poems, where the beauty and intimacy are told lightly and sometimes harshly.

Born and raised in Colombia where I studied Fashion Design, I moved to Paris to complement my studies with an Art Direction programme (on going). Thanks to the prize I won in Colombia (International Illustrator Prize of Tragaluz) I decided to start my career in illustration.
