Illustration, Photography and mixed media
Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Lucila Bristow lives and works in Berlin since 2003.
She grew up in Madrid where she started her creative work exploring the fields of music, fashion and history of art with her analog camera ,. These areas are part of her particular style which is based on a detailed and elegant appearance , , the connection with the viewer, the role of the women and the power of colour combination.
Photography provided her a a way of life and became a perfect means to express herself. Her snapshots succeed one another in musical concerts and interviews, travel reportage, album covers and collaborations in specialized music journals.
Images as information means have always been a main focus in her career. Not only on a professional level in the journalistic and communication enviroment, but also throghout her work in the visual art field. Whether it comes to an illustration, a picture or a headpiece. Lucila Bristow tries to make the most of the power of information of images. Hence she is always very mindful about the cultural aspects and meanings of the symbols that can be captured by an image In her illustrations, Lucila Bristow merges photographic details with digital illustration techniques. The original photographic topics models melt into a pure digital deconstruction in which the viewer is virtually forced to discover the details in order to appreciatethe metaphorical meaning of the image.
The last series of illustrations stamped by the artist as "Pop Up" includes her logo, an inverted heart placed as a nose in a simple and poetic way.
Another main point of her works is mankind everyday environment, a scope/an area where symbols and human beings make the perfect match. Her ability to communicate this issue through images inspires us to meditate/think about our own lives.
