Natalí Gutíerrez García is an artist based in Switzerland. Her art spreads through a variety of different fields like painting, illustration, movie making, editing, animation, writing, acting and more. The dark side in the human being in general plays a huge role in her art. Her creative process is very free. So for example, if she can work freely, sometimes she end ups with a documentary although she intended to make a theatre piece or a painting about something. But her base lies in visual arts. It always has. Maybe also because she has Aphantasia, so she literally needs to create the image outside of her brain to be able to see it.
We recently asked Natalí some questions about her inspirations:
Q: Where do you find your creative inspiration?
A: "Im inspired by the mind. How our moods and who we are as people impact our surroundings."
Q: Why do you do what you do?
A: " I use art as a language, in hopes to relate to a mood or feeling of another. I hope from that I am able to get empathy from the viewer, and then hand it back. "
Q: What art/artist do you most identify with?
A: "Neo Surrealism"
Q: What role does an artist have in society?
A: "To start a conversation, or project a reflection on society as a whole."
Q: What is your artistic outlook on life?
A: " I believe that perception is everything. It is the leading force that drives why humans act a certain way and do certain things. When I paint, especially in recent work, I paint our perceptions fluctuation over time, and how that perception impacts what and who we surround ourselves with. "
