Nicolas Navarro Rueda (b.03.11.1989, Bogotá, Colombia), is a visual artist, fashion designer, costume designer, illustrator and artist based in Berlin, Germany. The experimentation with movement, shape, silhouette and colour are applied to their projects to give a sense of fluidity through structure and detail. Recurring research in gender studies, spirituality, and identity are characteristics in their projects. They use creation and making as a therapeutic process.
Their heritage and identity are subjects that buildup much of their research. Their goal is to create honest stories as pieces of art, concentrating on the craft.
