Carina Shoshtary

Carina Shoshtary studied goldsmithing in Neugablonz. The artist pursued her education at the Academy of Fine Arts in Germany under Professor Otto Künzli. In addition to being part of important collections such as Munich International Design Museum and London Victoria & Albert Museum, her work has been presented internationally in numerous museums and galleries. In 2012, she received the Bavarian State Prize for Emerging Designers and the Upper Bavarian Prize for Applied Arts.

Using materials from her immediate surroundings and with a previous life, Carina Shoshtary considers herself a « hunter-gatherer ». In Karma Chroma, her newest artistic proposal, she uses fragments of graffiti, recovering the successive layers of posters on public panels that, with time, come off and fall on the ground. Maintaining a fusional relationship with color, she keeps it at the core in her creative researches, adding sometime found organic materials.
