About Me

Carolina Delgado-Duruflé is a multidisciplinary environmental artist and interior designer based in Toronto. She studied at the Glasgow Art School in Scotland, the Bogota campus of LaSalle College, and the Universidad Pontificia Javeriana in Bogota. In 2021, she created a room installation for the re-opening of the historical Gladstone House hotel in Toronto, was selected in Danielle Krysa's curated collection "A Perfect Mix" for the Toronto Outdoor Art Fair (TOAF) and was featured in issue XXV of Create! Magazine. 

In 2020, Carolina exhibited at 100 Vases during DesignTO and at Grow Op at the Gladstone Hotel, where she received the Ontario Association of Landscape Architects' "Ground Award". She was also awarded a Craft Project Grant by the Ontario Arts Council for Movimientos, an exhibition proposal that focuses on the global movements of goods, persons and animals through porcelain and glass creations. 

In 2013, Carolina was part of the Click Clack Lab that designed Colombia's first Click Clack Hotel in Bogota. Their creation was featured in Elle Italia, the Wallpaper Magazine, and New York Times. Carolina was also the Colombian winner of the Adidas Original White Space Project in 2012, an international art competition aimed at celebrating the originality of the most creative women of their country.

In 2004, she created the brand Planta Baja, Design and Plant Intervention, which resulted in an award-winning store focused on giving a new lifecycle to discarded objects by pairing them with live plants. Planta Baja continues on Facebook, where Carolina provides information on environmental protection and identifies trends in interior design.

Carolina's ceramic creations are available in Toronto at the Gardiner Museum shop as well as for international shipping from TOAF and this website.

 

She has exhibited her work at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery, Glasgow, the Celestino Mutis Botanical Garden in Bogota, the Banco de la República Art Museum in Colombia, The Warehouse Art Gallery, Bogotá, Agora Art Gallery, New York and the Cedar Ridge Studio Gallery, Toronto. She was also artistic director for television productions for the History Channel, Fox, RCN and Caracol.
 

Out of Toronto, Carolina also offers interior design, landscaping, and visual merchandising services to commercial and residential clients, environmental art installations, and sustainable decoration objects.
