Natalí Gutiérrez García (Péshou) is a multi-artist working between Cuba and Switzerland. Painting is her first contact with the world of arts, followed quickly by acting, film-making, writing and animation. Her curiosity drives her constantly into different art-fields. But may it be visual or performance arts, it's always her subjects which dictate the chosen media. Already from a young age she's been extremely fascinated by death and the evil in the human mind. So her first art project consists in painting half a year the corpses in the Forensic Medicine Berlin. Due to a possible recognition of the victims unfortunately her work could never be exhibited. Because of her urge of wanting to know the human being not only visually, but also in his mode of behaviour, in 2009, she starts to study acting. Natalí finishes her practical bachelor thesis in Acting with her first written theatre piece "Savannah runs", based on the violent death fo Savannah Hardin.During her Master Studies she focuses more on Directing and Visual Arts and works as a director and animator on two music videos.After finishing university she directs the experimental documentary "WIE" about the Berlin based photographer Joseph Wolfgang Ohlert and gets nominated for the Bern Movie Award. Although still working as an actress her old love for the visual arts gets again stronger every day. And during her first stay in Cuba she discovers wall painting and stubbornly integrates this way of painting later on in a movie shoot in Athens, Greece. Nowadays her former dark themes about death and violence open a bit up and make space for a more subtle and colourful examination of the human being. Her new acrylic series "EL MUNDO PARELO" is inspired by her long stays in Cuba. Although one can still sense a hint of strangeness in the paintings, the darkness seems to give up a bit space for a feeling what may be called hope potentially.
