Catalina Estrada

I spotted one of these images on Pinterest and I was so intrigued I went looking to see where such astonishing wall art came from.  Catalina Estrada is a Colombian illustrator based in Barcelona.  She has reinterpreted the Latin American folklore with its original strength to make it bloom.  Her impressive and cheerful visual language, infectiously optimistic, with thousands of colors, and with all the power of nature, goes beyond borders and she is now much loved throughout the world.

Unfortunately when I showed Surfer Boy he was less than enthusiastic about the wallpaper but lucky for me she does many other products -  bed linen, cushions, handbags and travel goods, umbrellas, school products, and many others.  Surely I can sneak something in, maybe a new doona cover!
