INTERVIEW FOR ESCRIBIRR, SPAIN, 2018
I was born in 1985 in the city of La Plata, Argentina, and I have been dedicated to the arts ever since. After studying painting as a child with Oscar Levaggi, I studied and graduated from the great Bachelor of Fine Arts of the National University of La Plata. This allowed me to handle different disciplines and different techniques, and develop a great pleasure for experimentation and diversity. Subsequently, while I studied Psychology and Aesthetics at University, I was specifically trained in illustration in different studios and with different teachers such as Nacho Malter, Leo Batic, Sicalo Illustration Studio (Lizzo Art, Luciano Comizzo), Leo Gauna, Blason Studio (Wally Gomez), Diego Lucía and Monica Weiss. After that I became interested in stop motion animation, studying with Carlos Escudero and Javier Luna Crook (Tamandúa Studio) I have done illustrations for books, records, magazines; animations for commercials, music videos and explainer videos; and I have won several awards in art, particularly in drawing, painting, sculpture, photography and literature. In 2021 I founded my own animation studio: MASA Animation Studio, where we develop mostly stop motion, but also 2D projects. Apart from illustration and animation, I really enjoy giving talks and workshops both with children and adults, and both at my own studio and through Teeter Pal, where I'm an online instructor since 2020.
