Pavalesa, Feminist Art For Everyone

Pavalesa, Feminist Art For Everyone

 

Feminist art inspires me.  I love seeing vivid images reflecting women's experiences. It is like I am meeting a kindred spirit when I see art that depicts women's lives. This is why when I came across the work of Natalia Atencio online I messaged her immediately. Her work is gentle, yet firm in it's beliefs, soft, yet strong visually, we just needed to know more about the woman behind it.

Natalia was born and raised in Santiago Chile. She studied and earned her degree in Translation and currently works as an English translator at the Millennium Institute of Astrophysics.  Despite all her accomplishments in her field of study, her passion lies elsewhere, in her art.  It was not until recently that she has started to see it as more than just a hobby.  In 2017 she launched her own illustration project called Pavalesa (a nickname you call little girls when they act silly and clumsy). She has been wildly successful since she has taken her art to the public. Making it personal, Natalia illustrates portraits of people she sees every day in the city and has collaborated with many Chilean illustrators for a national retailer. Her next project is a book that will tell stories of famous scientists and their paths to success. (And maybe also a project with us!) We asked Natalia if she would be up for a quick chat and luckily she agreed!

 

Can you describe the place you grew up?

I grew up in Santiago, Chile. Being in the Capital already gives an advantage in terms of access to more culture and everything really. I love my city, I love how it is configured, I love my fellow "Santiaguinos", always so moody and lonely. A total contrast of what people might think of a Latin American country.

Was there an event in your life that catapulted you towards using feminist themes in your artwork?

The firsts feminist marches of my generation. I was starting with my project and I was living in downtown again and that just open my eyes and I wanted to do something, I wanted to support my people and the best way that I can do that is with my illustrations.  

Who were your female role models?

As a kid, I would look up to Dana Scully from the X-Files because I wanted to become a Forensic Pathologist and she was so serious and professional. No need for a man or children. Now I adore former Chilean President Michelle Bachelet. She was the first woman to become a president in Chile in 2006, just when I turn 18 to vote. I marched for her in the streets of Santiago and felt for the first time that need to express my vision of the world that I want and how important was my opinion among so many people. I felt heard.  

What is your fondest childhood memory?

Being at home with my mom just drawing in bed and watching cartoons.

What is a typical day/week like for you?

I get up super early to go to work. I'm a full-time translator at an Astrophysics Research Center, then I go home to be with my boyfriend, we talk and eat, and then I start drawing before going to bed. Not a fancy lifestyle, but good enough for me :)  

What inspires you?  

Regular people on the streets, on the subway. People alone minding their own business surrounded by more people. I feel that people's particularities come out in that scenario.  

What advice would you give young women in the art world?

Stop overthinking what you do. When I finally started to post my work online, I was afraid and embarrassed, but then I realized that people actually like it and I was the only one in between my work and the world. I guess you only have to do it.

    Cryptocurrency hacking incidents have become increasingly prevalent as the popularity of digital currencies has grown. While it is challenging to provide an exact count, numerous hacking incidents have been reported, resulting in substantial financial losses for individuals and organizations alike. Hackers are not merely masters of technology; they are also skilled manipulators of human behavior. Through tactics like social engineering, they exploit the trust and vulnerabilities of individuals, tricking them into revealing confidential information or granting unauthorized access. By preying on our natural inclination to trust others, hackers gain entry to our digital kingdoms. The recuperation of bitcoin is no joke. Losing valuable digital assets may be quite distressing, especially with the recent surge in the value of Bitcoin. Coder Cyber Services is available to assist you in regaining access to your belongings, regardless of the cause—human error, phishing schemes, virus mischief, or other online deceit. Thus, do not be alarmed if you have unintentionally misplaced Bitcoin. Coder Cyber Services may work wonders and get back what is truly yours. Before you know it, “abracadabra!”, you’ll be back in the Bitcoin game thanks to their knowledge, commitment, and dash of digital magic.

    I just want to say Thank You to everyone who supported me through the years. My name is Manuel Franco, New Berlin, Wisconsin. My story of how I won the Powerball lottery of $768.4M is a bit of a tale. I have been playing Powerball tickets for 6 years now since I turned 18. I bought my first ticket on my 18 birthday. I was feeling very lucky that day because I had contacted Dr. Odunga Michael to help me with the winning Powerball numbers. I really had that great great feeling that I looked at the camera wanting to wink at it. I only did a tiny part of it and trusted him. He gave me the numbers after I played a couple other tickets along with it for $10. I checked my ticket after the winnings came online and saw the numbers were correct including the Power play. I screamed for about 10 minutes because it felt like a dream. I had won $768.4M. You can check my winning testimony with the lottery officials just with my name search. Thank you Dr Odunga.

    Hire A Hacker To Recover Lost Or Stolen Bitcoin//Lost Recovery Masters

    It wasn’t easy to support myself and my family financially. As a woman, I felt inadequate when I couldn’t give my children a comfortable upbringing. I agreed to the idea of a rapid money making scheme because I wanted to break the chain and I wanted my family and mother to have a happy life, and I’m telling you this because the Bitcoin investment plan is a fast money making Ponzi and a scam. Thanks to Lost Recovery Masters, who made it possible for me to understand the truth about the scam project, I will not commit the same mistake again.

    Hackers have become interested in Bitcoin, the virtual currency that has taken the world by storm, in addition to investors and computer aficionados. Cybercriminals seeking to take advantage of weaknesses in the digital sphere find it an appealing target due to its decentralized structure and enormous financial gain potential. With Bitcoin’s value and popularity rising, there is a greater risk of theft than ever before. A growing number of people have been left saddened and financially crippled by Bitcoin theft instances in recent years. In order to steal Bitcoins, hackers use sophisticated methods to get unauthorized access to digital wallets, online exchanges, and even individual computers. Due to the decentralized and irreversible nature of Bitcoin transactions, victims have few options for tracking down and recovering stolen money. Daniel Meuli Web Recovery is one group that distinguishes out from the others in this dangerous environment and gives victims of Bitcoin theft a glimpse of hope. Daniel Meuli Web Recovery has established a reputation for being an expert in navigating the complicated world of cryptocurrency theft, since they are the only team that is still in operation and committed to helping people recover access to their stolen Bitcoin.

    Ladies and gentlemen. I highly recommend the service of GEO COORDINATES HACKER. I have been in a financial mess for the past few months, I’m a single mother with kids to look after. I invested the sum of $357,800 in Bitcoin with a cryptocurrency company I met online. After a couple of weeks, my initial investment had increased from $203,800 to $579,850. This felt so good as the investment grew rapidly in just a few weeks. When it was time to withdraw, my withdrawal request was denied, all effort to make withdrawal declined, then I realized I had been ripped off. I came across Bobby Zion’s post on a blog where he talked about a hacker who helped him out called GEO COORDINATES HACKER. Thanks to GEO COORDINATES HACKER. For helping me out of my financial situation, I never believed because I have spent so much money on different hackers who did nothing other than running away with my money. I gave it a tryer, all I did was to follow the processing and be cooperative and today I am proud sharing the testimony of God-sent GEO COORDINATES HACKER. You can as well reach him through Email: geocoordinateshacker@proton.me. Or geovcoordinateshacker@gmail.com I keep saying thank you Geo Coordinates Hacker.. And God bless you for everything.
