Biography / Caratoes

Born in Belgium and based in Hong Kong, artist and illustrator Cara To, also known as Caratoes, describes herself as a space designer who increases the beauty and serenity of a place with her artwork and a precise message. Travelling the world and painting, her artistic development led to several shows and commissions for international brands. Her works are featured as a part of the opening of URBAN NATION Museum in 2017.

Cara To was born in a small village near Gent, Belgium, lived in Amsterdam and worked as a 3D-artist and as a creative at an advertising agency following her graduation from university in Game Design. In 2011, she started painting in the streets of Amsterdam and some years later decided to re-discover her origins by moving to Hong Kong, where she became a full-time artist. Her artwork with a focus on graffiti and murals, spans many mediums and genres and combines tenuous, hypnotic line work with mind-blowing neon colours and characters of mesmerising quality.
