Claudia Alexandrino, aka @shutupclaudia, a young Portuguese illustrator who has made Milan her home. She started her career as a Graphic Designer, without neglecting her true passion: illustration. The Shut Up Claudia project stems from the strong need to communicate the truest and strongest part of herself to the world, without filters and conventions.

The woman is the main subject of her works, an irreverent type of woman, sincere and without masks, just like Claudia, who through this alter ego tells the truest facets of the reality of every woman.
The subject is not the standard beauty of contemporary society, it’s real: she has stretch marks, does it not depilate, the thing that most distinguishes it from current women? She is happy with herself, loves and accepts her body.
The colors and lines remember cartoons and the imaginary world of children: bright tones, unicorns, unreal proportions and lots of fantasy.
