Natacha Ivaldi is a French artist of Venezuelan origin who was born in Fontainebleau in 1991. She makes different formations in art such as in a studio directed by the artist Gilles Bolling, classes for applied art in Vincennes or art history at the Sorbonne university, that have allowed her to learn different techniques and to refine her artistic look.

Her desire to become a painter originates in her childhood and has grown again since she learned her ancestor Vilma Lwoff-Parlaghy was a well-known artist, particularly for the Blue portrait (1916) of Nikola Tesla, and the portraits of King Edward VII of England, Otto von Bismarck and other important figures of her era.

This discovery triggered a strong desire to paint and in 2013 Natacha Ivaldi started creating her own paintings in relation to technology. She has many influences such as her environment, her father who was an inspiration because of his profession in informatics research, and the evolution of technology in the world. Other sources of influence are the concepts of art movements like cubism, op art, abstraction, de stijl along with her travels. She's still deeply overwhelmed by her trip to Japan in 2014 which has been a motivating factor to the realization of her first series of paintings.
