Graciela Goncalves Da Silva is an Argentinean artist, Animalitoland is her visual universe.
Self-taught illustrator, Graphic Designer from Buenos Aires University, she spent the last 10 years experimenting different visual areas. Started with comics and fanzines, then worked in animation, videogames, toys and graphic design, blending different styles and techniques.
After too much studio life, she went out in the street and started painting freely, which was a revolution in both personal and artistic ways. As a result of this journey, she cultivated a personal style which has gained recognition internationally: Argentina, Spain, Germany, France, Hungary, Norway, Sweden, Estonia, Portugal, Belgium, UK & China are some of the places her creatures stepped into.
Among exciting projects, she’s been a conference speaker in Pictoplasma Berlin (DK) -character art-, and Intramuros (ES) -contradictions of street art- ; painted her biggest wall -9 story building- for Artscape (SE), and presented “Corteza Invisible” a solo show in Swinton & Grant (ES).
She’s now travelling in Europe, wondering what new adventures will 2017 bring along.
