My name is Carolina Egusquiza and I'm a Peruvian-born artist living in Auckland, NZ since 1997. Art has always been part of my life as I have had started to draw from a young age. I’m inspired by photography, fashion, music, landscape sightings, nature, still-life, animals and cartoons as part of my art practice. I enjoy using graphite, both water-based and coloured pencils, ballpoint and marker pens for my drawings on paper. Acrylics and varnish are also mediums that I usually incorporate into my paintings. I use Adobe Photoshop as well to render many of my illustrations, even though a few of these ones are digitally converted. I have been influenced by Abstract Expressionism, Pop Art, Surrealism and Cubism and therefore, I’m always eager to applying these elements into my works.
