Marcela Bolívar is a digital artist whose passion for photography and illustration has led her to express herself through photomanipulation since 2004. During these years she has found and developed her own style, in which she has combined multiple techniques, being painting, drawing and even sculpture part of the execution of her work. Her compositions all based in photographs, undergo a complex process of transformation, assemblage and detailing that brings them closer to a pictorial expression.
Marcela Bolívar‘s photo illustrations have a light touch، the figures and surrounding flowers, plants and fabrics appear to billow in the wind, as if they might be blown away at any moment. Sticking to a mostly pale color palette, Bolivar gives her characters an elegant essence. We see them morphing and changing their shape to blend in with elements of nature, as if they behold mystical powers we can’t quite comprehend.
