About the Artist

Carolina Rodriguez Fuenmayor is a visual artist from Bogotá, Colombia. Her work is focused on the illustration field using drawing as the main resource to develop her projects. Currently, she’s part of a traditional graphic arts collective and studio known as “Taller Trez” and also works as a freelancer in the editorial world.

With her work she represents the matters of life that surprise her most, her biggest desires, and things she cannot easily say. She is trying to understand what she is and what surrounds her so that she can explain to another person what she considers important in the universe in which we live. Her obsessions, emotions, and frustrations have become the engine to find new tools and processes to communicate her inner self.

On this path she has explored various techniques and methods, initially in the world of drawing and later with digital painting. She’s trying to live a process where the artist’s life and its expressions and conceptions are transformed into narrative tools with limitless resources, hopefully instigating research and innovation.
