Carolina Hicks is a Colombian-American artist, writer, and musician born and raised in Los Angeles. What began as zine-making practice in 2011, spilled into her current practice: a nexus of illustration, publishing, writing, painting, design, sculpture, video, animation, sound, performance, and social engagement.
The work is a response to the overwhelming, grief-stricken enmeshment between and amongst the ecological, socio-political, cultural, mental, and identity crises occurring on Earth (from private to planetary in scale); a fibrous web of existential, emotional, and ontological inquiry.
In recent years, she’s participated in residencies at CalArts, Otis College of Art and Design, Malmö University, and most recently with the collective Loves Remedies in participation with ArtCenter Downtown. She holds a BA in anthropology from San Francisco State University and an MFA from California Institute of the Arts.
