ABOUT ME

KATARINA KUSHIN

ARCHITECTURE + FILM DESIGN

LUCASFILM ART DEPARTMENT

Throughout my journey in school, living abroad and the beginnings of the working world, I found myself continually drawn to the creation of cinematic space. My first projects working in the film art department include Captain Marvel, Birds of Prey, The Mandalorian, and Obi-Wan Kenobi. This led to an exciting opportunity to join the Lucasfilm Art Department as a junior concept artist. As I continue to keep expanding my skill set beyond architecture and into concept design, I hope to bring exciting and enthralling environments to the screen.

My days off include reading science fiction, listening to film scores, practicing yoga, and studying the great apes at the zoo. Any travel opportunities that arise, I take to continue learning about our beautiful world and inspire my global perception of design.
