My name is Celeste Aires. I was born in San Juan, Argentina, a town by the Andeans. I grew up in a house with a big garden, two dogs and a little sister. I always loved drawing, painting, sculpting, writing, and I always had a big imagination. So I decided I wanted to be an artist for a living. Therefor, I studied hard to get a place at a good high school, in my town, where you could choose a speciality after de second year. Of course I chose arts and design. After high school, I went to Art collage for a little while, but then I dropped it and became a trekking guide, I spent several years working in the mountains and climbing around the world. In 2011 I moved to Buenos Aires to study Animation Direction and I became a professional illustrator a year after that. 

I love mid century modern style, geometrical shapes, adventure tales, chocolate, mountains, being outdoors, animals and plants. I also love learning new things so I´m always doing workshops and courses, such as silkscreen, letterpress, poster design, character design, among others.

I think my work is a bit nostalgic, simple and funny. I want to evolve as an artist and explore and mix all medias and techniques I can. 

By the way, my name means Light Blue Air :)
