Melissa Murillo, known as Meyoko, creates the metamorphosis of a surreal world inhabited with hybrid characters and peculiar fauna.

She uses ballpoint pen,watercolor and acrylic to create luxuriant forest populated with imaginary plants and bizarre characters.

Her work often incorporates emotions such as melancholia, vulnerability, the fear of abandonment yet she confronts them with dogmas such as utopianism, heroism or humanism to achieve a narrative dialogue of intense poetry.

Meyoko, from Equatorial origins, discovered her passion for her art in France; she subsequently studied in Paris and began illustrating.
Turbulent times caused her to move to Berlin, in an environment more suitable for Meyoko's development and personal quest, a path devoted to her art.
