Quirky Cartoon Caricatures
Ignacio Gatica Makes Vibrant Whimsical Street Art

By: Matt Ho (Superstar) Apr 14, 11

There are so many different styles of street art and Ignacio Gatica has developed his own making his works stand out from the rest.

Instead of large typography tags, large-scale realistic portraits and stencils, Ignacio Gatica does more colorful cartoon characters who are quirky in their own right. What’s even more interesting is that a spray can isn’t what he uses to create his art. Gatica prefers the use of acrylic, paints, brushes and pens, which is just as effective as the usual tools that his peers have in their arsenal. A lot of his work feels raw and has this wonderful child-like playful aesthetic that sets itself apart from other artists in this medium. 

If you’re looking for a change in style for street art, Ignacio Gatica will give you something more subtle, whimsical, fun and innocent at the same time.
