Caro Arevalo is a Peruvian visionary artist based in Brooklyn, NY.

From her Amazonian heritage she embraced the importance of rituals and ancestral wisdom. This is reflected on her intricate artwork that talks about how by observing nature we can notice that there is no real separateness in between beings; this leads her to identify the whole universe connected as a one.

I met Caro in a cacao ceremony (cacao ritual has brought so much magic into my life!), and it was one of those moments when I knew I was meant to connect with Caro further – before I even saw her beautiful art.
