Illustration, Photography and mixed media
Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Lives and works in Berlin since 2003
She grew up in Madrid where she started her creative work within the analog photography, exploring the fields of music, fashion and history of art. Elements that are part of her particular style. A style based on detailedness, elegance, connection with the viewer, the role of the women and the power of color combination.
Photography made possible a way of life and a means to express herself. Her snapshots succeed one another in musical concerts and interviews, travel reportage, album covers and collaborations in specialist music journals.
The image as an information mean has always been a main axe to her career. Not only professionaly in any journalistic enviroment, but also regarding her work in visual arts. Wheter it comes to a illustration, a photography or a headpiece. Lucila Bristow try to take advantage of the informative forces of images. That is why she always take care of all the cultural sides and meanings into the symbols an image can capture.
In her illustrations, Bristow melt photographic details with the technique of digital illustration. The original photographic models disolve leading to a pure digital deconstruction, in which the viewer is nearly forced to discover details to appreciated a metaphoric meaning inside each image.
Bristow “stamps” the last serie of illustrations, "Pop Up", with her logo, an inverted heart, placed here as a nose in a simplistic but poetic manner.
Another main side of my works is mankind´s everyday environment, there´s where symbol and human being make the perfect match. Communicate this through images helps daily pondering about our own lives.
