Carina Shoshtary

Carina Shoshtary was born in Germany and received her training in goldsmithing in Neugablonz. She studied contemporary jewellery at Munich Academy of Fine Arts with Otto Künzli. In addition to being part of important collections such as Munich International Design Museum or 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 to the ground. Maintaining a fusional relationship with colour, she keeps it at the core of her creative researches, adding sometimes found organic materials to her creations.
