"Angie Pik was born (and still lives) in Bogotá, Colombia. Since she was a child, she has enjoyed film productions, especially animations. In them she found support and emotion; in fact she discovered that she could better understand the world through them. On bad days, she thought "I want people not to feel alone, or feel support through my work" and so she decided to get involved in the world of illustration and animation. She began to draw and improve by observing many great references and also learning about art history. She had classes in illustration techniques, anatomy and cinematography.
During her travels, Angie has found spectacular artists who inspire her to improve, including Leo Espinosa, Lorena Álvarez and Alejandro Mesa, who are her compatriots; Gop Gap, Satoe Tone, Lissy Marlin, Rafael Mayani, Yuko Shimizu, among many others. Angie is very passionate about illustration, cinema, animation, music, ice cream, chocolate and animals - she thinks that if she were not an illustrator, she would have dedicated her life to animals!
Angie wants to close this biography with her philosophy on life: We have no choice but to keep trying, but this time try it with a lot of love."
