Maria Paula Quiva

I was born in 1987. Bogotá, Colombia. 

I live and work in Barcelona.

 

I work with different mediums such as painting, drawing and printing. I also work as an art director and sometimes as a make-up artist for different audio-visual projects, creating a diverse and creative content in communication, design, film and photography. I love to work with creative teams.

 

In 2017 I have decided to give me a second chance as a tattoo artist. I respect and admire the labor in this huge world of tattoo. I still have to learn a lot before I get where I want to be. That’s why I’m working very hard to ink beautiful things on the skin of whoever wants to get some of my designs tattooed.

Life itself, nature, mythology, animals, femininity and blood are the themes that inspire most of my work.

Symbolism, expressionism and certain aspects of surrealism are the main conceptual bases of my visual projects.
