About the Artist:

Mau Prada is an illustrator born in Bogota, Colombia. She moved to California in 2005, and graduated Summa Cum Laude with a BFA in Illustration/Animation from San Jose State University in 2016. She currently lives and works from her home studio in San Jose, California, under the supervision of her four cats.

Mau's art is influenced by Mid-Century design, illustrators of the early 20th Century, animation industry artists and children's book illustrators. She also draws inspiration from her travels, nature and her childhood obsessions and memories. Mau aims to create original, beautiful and colorful illustrations that make people smile, and appreciate the elegance of simplicity.



At the moment she is working on a fun color-themed memory game, which will be released next year. Some of the pieces that are displayed in this gallery will be part of that project.

When Mau is not drawing or painting, you can find her reading, watching old Hollywood films, having a nice cup of tea, going for afternoon walks, or planning future trips.

On the Web:

You can follow Mau Prada on Instagram, Tumblr, Facebook and Pintrest; and buy her products on Etsy, Society6 and RedBubble.

Mau's website is at www.mauprada.com.
