Judy Kaufmann was born in Santiago, Chile, in 1980. In 2004 she decided to settle down in Barcelona, where she specializes as an illustrator. Judy has developed an original style that has attracted major clients such as BBC London, CCCB, Google UK, Editorial Planeta, Editorial Random House Mondadori, Editorial RBA, Mao Mao Publications, The Clinic, Notro Films, and Poolga, among others. She has also taught classes in drawing and sketching at the Instituto Europeo di Design (IED). As a complement to her career, Judy collaborates annually with the University of Barcelona as an instructor in creativity for advertising students.

About the print:
My Home and the City is an illustration I made that was inspired by my childhood and my neighborhood. The neighborhood in which I was raised was full of beautiful, small houses, all of which were similar to one another.

This is a digital print on acid free, Neenah uncoated matte 100lb cover paper that is 80% recycled. It was digitally signed by the artist and was numbered by The Working Proof.


Process drawing.

What has inspired you recently?
As I always say, I find inspiration from what I don't understand, what I don't know, what I don't know how to do, and what I am not.

Why did you choose to pair The Shama Foundation with your print?
I chose to pair my print with The Shama Foundation because there is a lot of need in Africa, and because The Shama Foundation helps needy children.

How have you seen art transform the world around you?
The color, the inspiration, and the message of an artwork can change your perspective, emotion and even maybe your way of thinking. That is enough to change a person.

If you could pick one artist to mentor you, who would it be?
Frida Kahlo, for her strength, her unique beauty, and her accurate mind.

Who are some artists you think people should know about?
Klaus Hack, Cy Twombly, Niki de Saint Phalle, Alexander Calder, Picasso, Saul Steinberg, among others.
