Natalia Virafuentes is a Latinx artist born and bred in Chicago. She has a range of skills with a flair for digital illustrations, murals, and painting. She even designed an album cover! One of the reasons I became attracted to Natalia’s work is her fascinating style, particularly the face and hand art (it’s all about the eyes). Here’s the bold piece I bought after seeing them on Instagram.
Enhancing Chicago, one neighborhood at a time
Natalia has painted murals all over the city, including Logan Square, Albany Park, and Pilsen. I recently found her lovely floral design outside of Khepri Cafe, and a mural she painted at Blue Moon Art Gallery. It was great to meet her in person as I watched her live paint at a Project Logan event.
She’s got the goods!
Natalia’s online store is extensive. Her wares include but are not limited to clothing, phone cases, accessories, and stationery. This would be a great time to start your holiday shopping while supporting a local artist.
