About the artwork:
Art in calabashes is a traditional technique in Brazil. Karina wanted to capture the human relations side of the company Sevendots, by visualizing a person in the logo. When she read about the company, she felt straight away that it is all about its people and how everyone works together as a team. So she wanted to give the logo a human interpretation.
About the artist:
Karina is a young artist who has always been curious about the historical and traditional craft techniques of the cultures. She graduated in Fine Arts (FAAP – Sao Paulo) in 2006. She works with calabash sculptures and gets inspiration from people’s unique features and personalities. Her figures are always different from one another, being born from the natural shape of the gourds. The closed eyes symbolizes the connections with the spiritual side of us all.
