An all-time favorite artist of ours, Erika Gutierrez is a painter and illustrator who lives in Colombia. Her art suggests experience beyond her 32 years. She studied plastic arts at Bellas Artes in Cali, Colombia and currently lives in Bogota.
We love the colors and details of her works – her expression through this medium is both beautiful and remarkable. Erika tells the stories of her life through her paintings. Her emotions spill out in great detail. Erika often paints in the night hours when she is unable to sleep – peace and darkness give her the opportunity to create without disruption. She herself is often the subject of her painting and if there is a female in the piece, it is always Erika.
She has worked for clients such as: The Washington Post, the South Korean brand Ader Error, ID magazine, society6, Food for the Hungry, Min and Mon bags, Rookie Magazine, Colombian magazines, exhibitions with the Son Espace gallery at fairs such as YIA YOUNG INTERNATIONAL ARTIST, PREVIEW BERLIN, ART COPENHAGEN, CONTEMPORARY ISTANBUL among others.
