Christian Montenegro

Christian is an Argentine illustrator born in 1972. He first started off as a cartoon artist with Alberto Breccia but after understanding that illustration was his passion then studied Graphic Design at  the Universidad de Buenos Aires.

He worked both in Argentina and abroad in a diversity of formats: books,  magazines, advertising, TV, web, etc, making him one of the most versatile  illustrators in the country.

He also exposed his work and gave lectures in Buenos Aires, Barcelona, New  Delhi and Berlin.  His work has been selected to be part of the book "100 Illustrators" by Taschen. His style could be compared with a Lego system, simple pieces are combined in a  more complex organization.

In 2009 he was awarded the Swatch Special Prize of the Young Illustrator Award.
