Catalina Estrada in Anti-Violence Campaign

She's kept busy with exhibitions, a new book, and commissions from the likes of Zune and Paul Smith. Now, Colombian-born visual artist Catalina Estrada turns her art and attention towards anti-violence in a new campaign.

Sponsored by Yo Dona, a section of Spain's El Mundo paper, the campaign gathers three visual artists together to raise awareness about violence against women. Three posters were art-directed by men and illustrated by women, namely Estrada, animator Carolina Merlis, and illustrator Nina Chakrabarti.

"The idea [is] to show a very feminine and delicate illustration contrasted with Curse words," explains Estrada. "...to show that violence against women often starts with verbal abuse and that women shouldn't wait for the violence to turn physical before they seek help."

Fans are invited to visit the campaign's site and vote for their favorite illustration.
