CAROLINA FERNANDEZ


Thanks to her charming Latin-American background, both literary and artistic, Brussels based Colombian artist Carolina Fernandez paints as she would tell personal stories and allegorical tales. In her work an open dialogue, a silent conversation takes place through her favourite characters, being those old grand-mothers, wild animals, talking plants or guardian angels. 

 

Carolina Fernandez. Born in Bogotà, 1983. Lives and works in Belgium.
