Afield Portrait | Alejandra Ballón – SOI: Research & Graphic Studio Shipibo-Conibo

Artist and researcher Alejandra Ballón Gutiérrez was awarded the 2015 AFIELD fellowship for her initiative SOI: Research Center and Graphic Studio Shipibo-Conibo, a nonprofit cultural association which aims at rescuing ancient and modern Amazonian Design Patterns and forms, to understand the evolution of the communities decoded on the graphics and colorimetry studies. SOI is also invested into gathering artefacts, textiles, murals and drawings produced in the cultural exchange with the local communities of Cantagallo in Lima (Peru).
