Carina Shoshtary

Carina Shoshtary describes herself as a kind of modern hunter-gatherer finding many of the materials for her artworks in her immediate surroundings. Her choice of materials is often unusual: colorful graffiti from heavily sprayed walls, old bobbin laces found in a cellar, and her most recent work manipulating biodegradable and eco-friendly plastics. With scientific curiosity and sensitive intuition, Shoshtary releases the potential of these varying materials into emotional, imaginative, and innovative pieces. The curator of the popular Fashion For Bank Robbers Instagram account, Carina is currently working on a large project incorporating her multidisciplinary background in wearable art, photography, and sound.
