Nuria Muro Gio is a Peruvian illustrator who was born and raised in Lima. Nuria’s art was inspired by Genndy Tartakovsky’s work on Nuria's favourite childhood shows. However, Nuria is glad her own style has evolved a lot through the years and is now characterized by lineless shapes, textures, and rich, bright colours, all made digitally. She loves sharing art with her favourite fan communities, which fills her with joy. She also loves exploring her own thoughts through doodles and working on art about everyday life in Peru to rediscover the magic of her own city. When she is not drawing, you’ll find her baking bread or discovering new music with her best friend.
