by day an architect, by night an illustrator, carolina moscoso blends work and play to create whimsical drawings and surreal imaginings using tools and programs generally reserved for digital design. using computer aided design software autoCAD, moscoso populates her ‘domestic nudes’ series with naked characters, interacting with tools and appliances rendered in gorgeously simplified lines and colours. objects as mundane as toasters and spaghetti pots become playgrounds for unpredictable displays of nudity.

‘as an architect I use tools like rhino, autoCAD and so on,’ explains carolina moscoso, who describes the drawings as ‘naughty human interventions in domestic stills’. ‘having always hand sketched, but not always having the time for it, I started to experiment with autoCAD, taking advantage of the long hours I spent with it. in others words, I managed to create a form of personal expression out of an inevitable cold and technical tool by subverting its original purpose.’

moscoso is an architect by day, and uses tools like autoCAD and rhino on a regular basis
the series enlivens everyday objects with unpredictable displays of nudity
minimal lines, coloured dots and playful curves help give the drawings their charm
bold yellow, loud pinks and stark whites make up the backdrop to the sketches
let’s face it, who hasn’t wanted to frolic around naked in a spaghetti pot?
