The magic has returned – Catalina

Why did you choose this image?
This drawing is of my most recent, it is Newt Scamander, the main actor of the movie “fantastic beasts and where to find them”. I chose that image to present to you today because it reminds me of me when I was about 10 years old. I was growing up with the stories of Harry Potter and his incredible world of magic and sorcery, my father was the one who took me to each movie and with whom I shared those stories.
Where did the idea for this art come from?

Over time Harry Potter had his end and I did not know more about that wonderful world for which I had been so passionate.
But after a few years, the magic had finally returned! and I was able to see that wonderful world again.
With great happiness and a touch of nostalgia, I chose to portray this character, remembering at the same time those moments when I sat in the cinema room waiting to see them again.
What does this art mean to you?
It is very important, that is, art is my life. Each drawing or portrait I make is a part of me that is counted.

My family is composed of lawyers, my mother is a lawyer, my father, my grandparents were, even my sister is studying to become one tomorrow.

Unlike them I wanted to do something different, art was my passion, I decided then to follow that path and I think it’s what gives me happiness every single day.

What can you tell us about yourself?
My name is Catalina, I live in Argentina, Buenos Aires. I am 23 years old.

I live alone with my boyfriend for 6 months (I hope it is for a long time more XD) and our kitten Leia (yes, she has the name of the Star Wars princess) is 4 months old. I love to swim, to embroider scarves, to go to the river that I have near my house and to drink mates (a drink that is customary to drink here in Argentina), to drink coffee, to watch movies with my boyfriend. to go for a walk with my sister, to go shopping with my mom and things like that.

What else can you tell us about your art?

I like to consider that my art is like a chameleon, it is never the same.

My art varies as well as my tastes over the years, sometimes I do portraits, sometimes I do cartoons, or sometimes I just do not feel like drawing. My art, as I said before, is my life, so much so that it represents me. My style varies with me, and changes as I change. That’s why I love it, because the drawing I make tomorrow will never be the same as the one I did today.
