Alejandra Barahona aka Bara
I started developing my unique style in 2004 when I started working for a Norwegian Magazine called Under Dusken. My illustrations are character driven inspired by people that cross my path, they are usually strangers I see in the street, at work or friends of friends, basically everybody is a potential character in my world.
Born in Guatemala, lived in Norway, in New York City, Kenya and now living temporarily in Taiwan, I illustrate and paint weird characters with a very humorist side. I have exhibited in Guatemala, Oslo, London, Ontario, California, New York, Brooklyn, Long Island City and Baja California.
I am also one of the founding members of El Chiltepe, an on-line magazine that showcases new and innovate work by a variety of international artists and aimed for Latin Americans. I am also part of BC Colectivo where Guatemalan photographer Chinitas Yon and I experiment with recycled materials combining our talents to create unique pieces of art.
