Carolina Borja

Carolina is a young emerging visual artist. She studied Industrial Design with a
minor in Mexican Folk Art. She was born in San Diego California, and raised in
the border city of Tijuana before establishing in Mexico City. She feels attracted
to the contrast of cultures, to the collision between customs and traditions and
finds her background provides a particular perspective on multiculturalism.

Carolina has recently been awarded a Forecast Making it Public Grant and a
ArtPrize Pitch Night Grant. She is passionate about Public Art and interactive art
projects. She is affiliated with the Women’s Caucus for Art, Women’s Art
Resources of Minnesota and board member of the Art Shanty Projects. Her
recent work incorporates elements of crafts and popular art; papier-mâché, tissue
paper, crepe paper and thread that merge into a more contemporary art esthetic.
