Zurik began painting graffiti in 2009 in her hometown,
Bogotá - Colombia at the age of 19. Her career has taken her from the beginning
to participate in numerous exhibitions and festivals of graffiti and urban art,
first at the local level, then nationally and later expanding reaching
countries such as Mexico, Australia, the United States, Denmark, France, Greece
and Spain, where she permanently resides since 2016.
From a very young age she had a strong interest in painting, learning to paint
in oil at the age of 10 and going through different painting techniques until
she was 15 when she first noticed letters. Zurik specialized in Graphic Design,
taking from this profession what she believed was useful in order to fuel her
passion for painting graffiti. She finished her career in 2014 but she has
never practiced it, always living and working painting on the street.
Her interest in letters has led her to develop a unique style in which volume

life, trying to interrupt as little as possible with the environment that

the use of letters in each of her works and creating a balance in her
compositions, which allows her to continue using them even in environments and
projects where usually making letters is still frowned upon.
Zurik continues to explore large-format painting without neglecting the
possibility of professionalizing herself in another type of branch later,
always in favor of graffiti; since another interest that she is passionate
about is video editing and production, in addition to curating exhibitions.
Quero criar uma peça de graffiti colorida que represente as diferentes estações do ano através das cores... para mim as letras podem-se adaptar e brincar em diferentes conceitos, funcionando como uma figura principal, mas também como um elo entre espaço e forma, ou abstrato e ilustrativo. Para a parede quero que as pessoas reconheçam as letras mas que também vejam mais através delas, que as apreciem e vejam como funcionam em grandes espaços, dando diferentes leituras e encontrando a beleza dos detalhes dentro delas.
