CATALINA ESTRADA

PEOPLEText: Julio Cesar Palacio

Born and raised in Colombia, Catalina lives in Barcelona where she develops many art works at the same time.

She is a freelance graphic designer and Illustrator, a teacher in at the Barcelona Design School IDEP. She also prepares solo exhibitions, and works for publications and magazines around the world : Die Gestalten Verlag, Graphic Magazine, Monoclab, Computer Arts Magazine, Frankie, Arte y Parte, and plenty more.

Catalina is hardly influenced by her early years spent in Colombia, specially her childhood.

During this time, her home was located in Colombia’s countryside surrounded by the nature, beautiful gardens, trees, animals and the mountains.

Catalina is blessed by the knowledge of the powerful colorist old Latin-American graphic style. Nowadays this heritage is mixed with the multicultural side of Barcelona, turning her work in a sophisticate contemporary folk art.
