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”.
