Catalina Vásquez Salazar
Artist, illustrator, filmmaker, and designer from the mountains of Medellín, Colombia.
Personal and intimate yet open and diverse, her work combines storytelling and graphic languages towards her own universe of topics, thus giving life to personal feelings, people and relationships, places and travels, personal and collective memories, and humanitarian causes.
Such a variety of possibilities keeps her active in both personal and commissioned works in various formats, including independent animation and documentary projects, illustrated books, comics and magazine articles, advertising, apps, educational projects, museography, textile, film, and fashion.
She is currently focused on developing her brand and personal projects, plus working on the community side and illustration at Reserve, where she has also been diving into web3.
