ABOUT THE DRAWER
KRING is a self-taught illustrator from Cebu, Philippines. She started drawing at five and has been involved in various artistic endeavors. She enjoys metaphysics, drawing with old pencils and ocassionally using obsolete versions of Photoshop.
The central figure of her work is the feminine character; highly-stylized to mimic classical painters' studies, the early Renaissance paintings, and the illustrations to fairy tales she read as a child. Nowadays, she is more interested in exploring personal myths with a hint of her obsession with occult symbols and imagery. With this style she enjoys delving into darker themes and giving them a lighter facade and giving a new perspective on their depth.
She lives with her partner and their three cats.
