Kukuli Velarde is a Peruvian artist based in the United States since 1987. Velarde’s work, consisting of ceramic, painting, drawing, and mixed-media, considers the consequences of colonization and its echoes in contemporary Latin American culture. While Velarde’s work focuses on Latin American history, particularly that of her home country of Perú, she asserts that this historical narrative contains complex universal characteristics that can be understood beyond the frame of its uniqueness.

Velarde has exhibited her work around the globe, from Kansas to Brazil to Taiwan.
