Juan Cavia

Juan Cavia was born with an innate tal­ent for draw­ing. When he was a child, he used to spend hours copy­ing his favourite comic books, but with­out very good results. At the age of 10, after many failed attempts to cre­ate his own sto­ries, he began tak­ing classes with Pro­fes­sor Car­los Pedrazz­ini, who, for over a year, directed his stud­ies to the per­spec­tive and syn­the­sis of human anatomy so he could later focus more pro­foundly on narrative.

For over 11 years, with­out inter­rup­tion, Juan Cavia devel­oped his scope of knowl­edge on paint­ing, draw­ing, com­po­si­tion, dynam­ics and sev­eral rep­re­sen­ta­tion tech­niques. Fol­low­ing his high school edu­ca­tion, he stud­ied cin­ema, while work­ing as a sto­ry­boarder and con­cept designer for adver­tis­ing agen­cies. A year later he starts work­ing with Marcelo Pont Verges (pro­duc­tion designer and comic book artist), with whom he works as an assis­tant for over 2 years in dif­fer­ent areas of expertise.

Since 2005, he is been work­ing as an Art Direc­tor for cin­ema, adver­tis­ing and the the­atre. In 2009, he was the set designer for the Oscar Win­ning film “El Secreto de sus Ojos”. He was also the art direc­tor of the 2011 film “Mi primera Boda”.
