Ximena Arias

I am an Illustrator and Graphic designer based in Bogotá – Colombia.

My work has been exhibited in Colombia, Germany, Russia and Perú.

Through my work I like to tell all kind of stories, turn simple and everyday life moments into something special, give an image to what we often see inside us, to what we feel, our dreams, what we love and bring that vision into the real world. I’m trying to find an answer to what we constantly have in our minds and give it a sense through imagery.

As an illustrator I've worked on editorial projects, film poster design and also music art covers. My illustration process include pencil, ball point pen or ink drawing on paper and digital colouring

Clients include: Panamerica Editorial, Revista Bacanika, El Salmón Editores.
