ABOUT ZURIK


Born in Bogotá – Colombia in 1990 and residing in Barcelona since 2016, ZURIK is a graffiti writer and graphic designer who has built her career based on a dynamic and colorful style founded on Graffiti Writing, which has been since the beginning the starting point for each project that she faces.

The letters that make up her name are the representation of each of her family members. Her style is part of the WildStyle current, where each letter retains its structural basis, being the union of these a set of connections and additions, with dimensions, shadows and effects, where the goal is to achieve the balance between creativity and readability. Despite that, ZURIK ZURIK moves away from the established rules, playing with the organic, geometric and the volumes of the technical drawing, which has transformed over the years into her personal, unique and highly recognizable style. This way she has earned an international recognition, not only for being one of the few women who practices it on a professional level, but also for being constantly evolving, creating pieces, without losing their roots, adapting to the different concerns addressed now a days in the Graffiti y el Street Art.

Currently, her work focuses on murals in public space, which keeps her traveling constantly; showing a growing interest in studio work. Zurik maintains a relationship between what she paints on the street and what she reproduces in smaller formats. For her, the technique over concept remains almost an unbreakable norm, giving this last one a secondary position in the trade of being an artist.
