Estela Cuadro

FEATURED October 2013


I live with the person I love most in my life, with whom I share many nice things, bike rides, a nice movie, go out to bars.

We also share books, painting and drawing together.

Morning are feeded by my little garden and my studio, where we spend much of our time.

One of the things that inspire me is music. It always transpose me and my sensory part takes me to an inside world,  introspective. It nourishes my imagination, it motivates me. Constantly leads me to paint many of my painting and I feel pleasure of that.

I feel like I never want to stop doing this. It is part of my lifetime.

At present, I am working on unique and illustrative products with a friend, call WUAU! ( ). 

We are doing the best. I never imagined making products, so it is a challenge for me.

I could join the artistic side with something material. It opens a new horizon, and makes me want to know and learn more about it.

I am proud of the nice people around me, and because of everything I get in my life, along the 34 years I am. That is how I feel today.

I am a happy woman, of simple things.

When I was five years old I started drawing in a ordinary place where I took my first steps and I learned there technical knowledge.

Everything was constructed there. I had to use millimeter grids and I had to made copies.

I remember I was very young then and that was pleasant for me at that moment.

While I did not realize I was not doing the best I could there, I was not using all my imagination.

When I started the graphic designer course at the University of Buenos Aires, in Argentina, I stopped drawing and illustrating.

I did not have free time because I was studying for the course and working at the same time. So much effort during all that years. I saw my degree so far.

When I graduated, about 23 years old, I took up illustration more deeply and in a professional side.

I met Silvia Mato´s studio. She was an important guide for me.

She drives me to recall my sensorial side from places I had never worked before.

Silvia Mato also helps me to understand my body language, the energy and many other things. Turning all that into my drawings.

I like the later works, in which I experimented with people, their posture, relation with the context and other people, animals and nature.

It always happens that the last thing I have done is what attracts me more.

Maybe it is because of my easy and quick boredom of what is equal and I need constant changes.

Although my style is very personal, I need to add something new to my work. It attracts me more.

For example making my drawings with natural elements, using different supports, learning how to tell the story through the illustration, every time using more complex elements. I am learning all the time and I am always looking for changes in my technics, so this way I am continuous leaning.

I consider more interesting this way of working and it is a challenge also.

All the best from Argentine!
