Ana Curbelo (known as untepid) is an award winning illustrator and artist.
She has worked as an illustrator internationally with agencies such as Scholz & Friends and Vice, creating characters with a very distinct personal style. Her most notable work is her work for The Tampon Book, which helped change the German law, and won several awards including a Grand Prix at Cannes Awards, Clio Awards and 2 more at the Eurobest Awards, attracting worldwide press interest.
Mostly alone and naked, their bodies and their thoughts are depicted with equal explicitness. Their openness and vulnerability endows them with a humorous and tender dignity, and, though disenchanted, their attitude is not detached or indifferent.
Ana is currently based in London.
