Artist feature — Natalia Virafuentes

Artist feature — Natalia Virafuentes

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.

Contact for services

Natalia loves painting murals and is actively seeking new opportunities. You can contact her direct via Instagram or through her website. I eagerly await tracking down some fresh paint.
