Natalia Colombo is an illustrator and graphic designer currently living in Buenos Aires. She studied Graphic Design at the Universidad De Buenos Aires. She has illustrated picture books published in Spain, France, Portugal, Italy, Mexico, Korea, Brazil, Chile, the United States, and Argentina. She has participated in individual and group exhibitions in Europe and Latin America. Her book Cerca was awarded the first International Compostela Prize by the Department of Education of the City Council of Santiago and KALANDRAKA. The Italian version of the same book, Vicini, received the Delle Palme Prize for Best Foreign Picture Book. Her images seem to come from an imaginary world where everything is happy, sweet, and playful; it is the world of children’s songs, game-filled afternoons, multicolored candies, and naptime treasure hunts. She works with colored and black pencils, acrylics, pen, ink, markers on different types of paper, and in digital format. Her favorite characters are animals and loves to draw them as protagonists of stories and "fábulas".|
