Karla Kantorovich is a mixed media artist from Mexico City-based in Miami, FL. She works with paintings, textiles, hand-made paper, and assemblages, leaning into the importance of texture and dimensionality to explore renewal. Karla’s art is a testament to the transformative power of nature. She brings the outside world into our realms, allowing us to explore the profound togetherness that binds us to the natural environment. By deconstructing and reassembling sustainably sourced materials, Karla creates a visual language that speaks to the ephemeral nature of life, the beauty of decay, and the intricate layers that compose our collective story. Kantorovich received the Ellies Creator Award 2021 from Oolite Arts, leading to her immersive art installation “AMATE” at Piero Atchugarry Gallery in 2022. She also received an Honorable Mention at the XIX Bienal Rufino Tamayo in Mexico City, exhibiting at the Museo Rufino Tamayo and the MACO Museum of Arte Contemporaneo in Oaxaca, Mexico. She has showcased her work nationally and internationally, including at the XIX International Biennial of Contemporary Art in Florence, the MFA Exhibition at the Frost Art Museum, the Mexican Consulate in Miami, and the Society of the Four Arts in Palm Beach. Kantorovich holds a Master of Fine Arts from Florida International University. Actively engaging with the community is of utmost importance to her; she works as a teaching artist aiming to inspire, connect, and provoke meaningful dialogues, embodying the potential for regeneration and growth.
