“History tells that there were 13 nuns who created the convent of Santa Catalina and in them …” the rebellious women behind the holy veils.

This was a project for a restaurant located in Arequipa, whose name is related to the convent in front of it. Paloma Nieri Studio – in charge of branding – contacted us to draw these interesting protagonists and their wishes.

13 Monjas — Craft Food & Drinks

Approach
From hand-drawn to digitized illustrations, the concept for this work was to draw the B-side of the nuns, of what we know as nuns. Together with Paloma we think of them as rebellious, disruptive women, who, beyond having taken the habits, never abandoned what moved them, which filled them with illusion and intrigue, beyond religion.

We take characteristic elements of the Peruvian culture – mainly from the Arequipa area – and then combine them with different types of habits; the ones that seemed most eccentric to us.
