Carolina Koster / visual artist

Born in Multan (Pakistan) as a daughter of development-aid workers, I grew up in Pakistan, Tanzania and The Netherlands. After having been inspired by the typographic poems of late Belgian poet Paul van Ostaijen, I studied Graphic Design at the Willem de Kooning Academy (Academy of Fine Arts) in Rotterdam. I graduated and then (co-)founded Witruimte – graphic design studio. My graphic designs show a conceptual approach and a special interest in the expressiveness of materials.

Feeling the need to work in a more autonomous way my field of practice gradually shifted.

In my work as an artist, materiality, (inner) nature and observations of the world around us, are a continuous source of inspiration.
