Raquel Echanique was born in Guayaquil, Ecuador and currently lives in New York. Her work has been on display in galleries worldwide. Echanique has said of her work, " My portraits are stirred up by swirls that pull, twine, divide and modify anatomy in different directions, resulting in a sight of hypnotic relaxation." The detail and carful use of color and patterns is beautiful. Her entrancing murals can been found on the streets of New York. To see more of her work visit her Tumblr page.
