CV

Carolina Koster
Born in Multan (Pakistan) as a daughter of development-aid workers, I grew up in Pakistan, Tanzania and The Netherlands. After having been inspired by the typographic poems of late Belgian poet Paul van Ostaijen, I studied Graphic Design at the Willem de Kooning Academy (Academy of Fine Arts) in Rotterdam. In 1994 I graduated and then (co-)founded Witruimte – graphic design studio. My work as a graphic designer shows a conceptual approach and a special interest in the expressiveness of materials.

In search of a more free way to express myself in my work, I then gradually shifted my field of practice towards visual arts.
