Arts + Crafts


September 30, 2009

Fillypa is an artist from Colombia who lives and works in Bogotá and she has incredible talent in both graphic design and illustration. In her work, she combines her four loves: screen printing, etching, drawing and painting and has been recognized and published in magazines worldwide such as Frankie (Australia) and MILK (France). Just look at her pastel world… You almost have to look really hard as they are SO soft like a whisper or a ghost…


Her art has been part of gallery exhibitions too — in Colombia, L.A., Spain and New York. I love her watercolor illustrations, I find them beautiful and touching — I look at them wondering what message each is trying to convey.

    Hi Holly,

    I love your blog, and I am Colombian. And, this just be my analness because people always miss spell it, but in the beginning of your article you spelled Colombia, “Columbia”. And, I just wanted to bring it to your attention. Thanks for all of your wonderful work.

      Catalina – Sorry, typo! It is correct in the last paragraph but wrong in the first. I’ve gone ahead and made that edit. Thank you for noticing! :) My aunt lived in Colombia by the way, lovely there!
