Portrait of Karla Almonte

Ello there! I am Karla.

I develop my career in different fields such as graphic design, illustration and photography.

As an artist, I’m essentially interested in dissecting and integrating my own culture into my pieces. I criticize it, I embrace it, and I often showcase elements that are linked to my childhood and experiences in them. When I began immersing myself into the world of Graphic Design and Illustration, I wasn’t sure of the impact that it had on people. I experienced graphics every day and everywhere, but I did not consider it to be emotionally impactful per se. Until, I became aware of the intersectionality of politics, feminism and graphics. Becoming aware of the many things one can do through this medium whilst maintaining a voice and a purpose drove me to execute previous and continuing projects.

I am currently based in the New York Metropolitan area.
