Since returning from Spain at the end of 2009, Georgina Ciotti has dedicated herself to creating a series of fantastic murals in Buenos Aires. “I have always had a tendency for the fantasy,” says Georgina. “When I was working in Barcelona, my designs were more about women and the female form, and works relating to topics such as desire or suffering and these types of things. Now I’m trying to create a bit more of the fantasy.”
Some of her recent works have included a series of goddesses and heroines. A character inspired by Joan of Arc with a gold helmet adorns a beauty parlour in Flores, and a goddess of protection and fertility named Olivia sits outside Ofelia, the bar and theatre space in Palermo. “They are women who I admire and they are also figures who have inspired me,” says Georgina.
