Catherine Lemaire (1983), Belgian visual artist, based in Barcelona since 2011. I took the Fine Art Painting degree at University of Brighton from which I graduated in 2007. With the aim to broaden my skills, I trained as a Graphic Designer in Belgium .
I have found through the artist book a way of transferring a little more the essence of the working process of a piece of art to the public. I believe that the “touching, picking up, turning pages and manipulating” are key elements in order to reduce the space between the artist and the viewer.
I like manipulating materials to create textures and shapes and let the paper (together with text and illustrations if any) tell the story.
Sylvia Gutiérrez Sánchez (1984). Photographer and graphic designer/web.
I enjoy working with my hands, using my computer, trying new techniques, meeting artists from different branches, seeing their work, learning from them, listening to music while I work. I like the inspiration created by sound. I love the street, the people in it, watching, the sound, I like to break the monotony.
I lived 15 years in Barcelona and 15 years in Costa Rica, where I currently reside. I used to work as photojournalist and graphic/web designer for different companies, now I currently work by freelance.
