Stefano and I were introduced at the house of some mutual friends, in a beautiful penthouse not far from Avenida Diagonal, in Barcellona. About 10 days later, on a windy afternoon, we met by chance on the Barceloneta beach, right in front of the gigantic metal fish that Frank Gehry created for the Art Hotel. Stefano was jogging, I had just come from a meeting and was getting on my Harley Davidson. We started chatting and discovered we had a lot in common, starting with contemporary art, which is a passion of Stefano's, and of myself, as well as being my job. He insisted on coming to see me gallery-loft, which he immediately called a playboy-mansion, and I took him for a ride on my Harley. As he came in, he was struck by the works by Marcela Gutierrez: one, in particular, he remembered having seen before but he couldn't quite remember where. I helped him out: in the Prada boutique in Soho, New York. That's where I saw it! I was immediately appointed cool-hunter for stefanocecchi.com and Prada Wallpaper by Marcela Gutierrez is the first work I'm presenting. What a coincidence!
Stefano ed io siamo stati presentati a casa di amici comuni, in una bella penthouse poco distante dall’Avenida Diagonal, a Barcellona. Circa 10 giorni più tardi, per caso, era un pomeriggio ventilato, ci siamo rivisti sulla spiaggia della Barceloneta, proprio davanti al gigantesco pesce metallico che Frank Gehry ha disegnato per l’Art Hotel. Stefano stava facendo jogging, io ero reduce da un appuntamento e stavo rimontando sulla mia Harley Davidson. Parlando abbiamo scoperto di avere molti interessi in comune, a cominciare dall’arte contemporanea, che per Stefano è una passione e per me anche, oltre che un lavoro. Ha insistito per venire a vedere la mia galleria-loft, che lui ha subito ribattezzato playboy-mansion, e ce l’ho portato a bordo dell’Harley. Entrando è rimasto colpito dalle opere di Marcela Gutierrez: una in particolare, ricordava di averla già vista ma non riusciva a mettere a fuoco in quale occasione. L’ho aiutato io: nella boutique Prada di Soho a New York. Ecco dove l’ho vista! Sono stato immediatamente nominato cool-hunter per stefanocecchi.com e Prada Wallpaper di Marcela Gutierrez è la prima opera che presento. Le coincidenze, a volte!

Product Description

Short Bio
Marcela Gutiérrez was born in Florida in 1978 and raised in Guatemala City, Guatemala until she was 18 years old.
Pursuing her interest in sketch illustration, she enrolled in Architecture in Monterrey, Mexico only to find herself merging into Graphic Design after two years. Academic and creative wanderlust lead to an intersection of color and design theory with figure drawing where she realized fashion and illustration was her true and consistent passion throughout her study. Following the steps of her favorite designers Alexander McQueen and John Galliano Marcela enrolled at Central Saint Martins in London and while studying, interned for Marc Jacobs and Nylon Magazine in New York and Luisa Beccaria in Milan. She took the opportunity to collaborate with Alexander McQueen and John Galliano. She graduated as a fashion designer.
