For the LUDO PROFILE project, I will emphasize the uniqueness of each of us by illustrating as many Pop Art profile pictures as possible that will create the corpus of an e-book. 


Hi! I am Catalina, a visual artist who LOVES abstracting people and sees colors everywhere.
My most recent solo show, LUDO (lat. “play”), is now on view in STURM UND DRANG GALERIE, in Austria.

I have received such a positive feedback on this colorful ludic series from so many people and because I am fascinated with faces and I analyze facial features since I can remember, I have created “Ludo Profile”.
For me, painting is playing. I have discovered this through my son and his evolution from a nursing baby to a toddler. He inspired LUDO project and he continues to inspire me in life in everything I do. He does it on two aspects: physically, by having my house full of colorful toys and seeing colors wherever I step, and emotionally, by being filled with such love and joy that I receive from him, which somehow, on an emotional level, translates into colors too. I just cannot look at the world the same way as before his arrival. Therefore, for this new project, I decided to stick with the name “Ludo”, that means “play” in Latin, because it is authentic, represents my reality as it is, and is something that totally defines my work.



Ludo Profile- project presentation collage (digital paintings)

This new project’s purpose is to abstract as many profile portraits as possible in order to show and emphasize the uniqueness and individuality of each and every one of us. Looking at somebody in a perfect profile angle you will notice an outline made of unique angles, distances and proportions, parameters who makes somebody recognizible out of a million other identities. This is much easier to see when you let the details go and focus on the overall shape.
In “Ludo Profile” I am using the flat form to emphasize this uniqueness inside all of us and the color to show emotions, to depict the spirit and the personality of the individual.

If you decide to be part of “Ludo Profile”, these are the steps we take together:

1. It all starts with your photograph. You chose a profile picture (or pictures) that you would like me to paint. We should establish from the start if you prefer a digital painting or a hand-made acrylic on canvas painting.
The picture should be (ideally) a perfect profile-angle portrait, like below:

Ludo Profile

Note: I am open to talk to you about other portrait angles and other types of composition too.

2. After this, I will ask you short questions about the person(s) in the photograph, questions that will help me create a painting with a personal impact. Now you can tell me any particularities you want me to include in the painting: favorite colors, favorite accessoires, etc. You may also include text: a personal quote, a date, something personal or something general, simple words or full sentences.

3. Now your painting is in process and you will receive the high resolution file as soon as I finish the work. If you opted for a pshysical work (print or hand-made painting), this will follow by post immediately. I will deliver the works chronologically, starting with May and ending around October, depending on the number of commissions.

That's it! Your profile picture is now part of the “Ludo Profile” and added to the e-book too!

Goals
$1 of $1,000 per creation
Dear patreons,
Thank you for liking and supporting my work.
Besides being in love with art, I am a mother and I am forever in love with my son. I work on the motherhood theme since my son did not even exist, because he was something I wanted since I was a child myself. The past years I have been a mother, I created art, and I spent 90% of my time closing treaties between these two important aspects of my life. It is not easy to continue an artistic path once you have the responsibility of a new life in your hands, but I think I do great. Moreover, my child is my supreme inspiration source and I cannot not imagine how my art projects would look like without him.
Achieving this goal will help me continuing doing what I forever love, which is to paint. It will help me focus on new, bigger projects for which I need space and plenty of resources. And it will also help me continuing being a great mom for my son.
You will always be the first to get notified about my future projects and you'll always have access to high-resolution files from my portfolio!
Thank you for supporting me,  
Catalina
