Karmen Kraft

Peruvian-German Artist based in Berlin since 2010, working and experimenting in the visual areas, mainly draw, paint, illustration, linoleum and silkscreen.

Karmen was born in 1976 in Gijón, Asturias in northern Spain and grew up in an matriarchal and artistic environment. Thanks to her mother's passion for painting and plastic arts, and her sister's musical sensitivity for the piano, surrounded by music, paintings and books, her childhood has always developed between brushes and scores, managing to awaken in her a love for all artistic expression in general and for drawing in particular. At the age of 18, she went to an art school in León, where she studied the engraving techniques. ...

She was admitted to the University of Fine Arts in Salamanca (Universidad de Bellas Artes de Salamanca), made her first experiences with oil paint and graduated from the University of the Basque Country (Universidad del País Vasco) with a degree in restoration and conservation of art.

She emphasizes that her artistic perspective is not feminist, but feminine.

For her Kraft have two readings, on the one hand is the second surname of her father and as the word itself indicates in German, strength is the family trait that best represents on the one hand, her fighting, adventurous, optimistic about life and on the other hand, also shows that female inner strength that remains hidden, sometimes vulnerable, of contradictory emotions and repressed feelings taken to the limit and that need to be released, stripping her soul through her works.
