CHIARA BAUTISTA is an illustrator and graphic artist based out of the Southwest.
Her work is recognizable based off of her graceful lines and soft color palette, but more notably from her characters and narrative content.
Chiara pulls from a plethora of imagery references, from religious iconography and Lucha Libre masks (a nod to her Mexican heritage), to music references (lyrics and titles to songs that have had an impact in her life).
Many icons and symbols as well as a variety of other characters populate her work, including birds, bears, skeletal characters, tentacles, keys, ribbons, the wolf and the rabbit, and the huntress, to name a few.
