After a successful career in advertising, the wish to create art became more and more urgent, so the decision was made to be a fulltime artist. Besides working with screen printing and a study in oil painting at the Art Students League of New York, she was invited to several artist residencies. Since then many group and solo shows followed. Caravan also works as curator and organizer of art fairs and fundraisers. She is the founder of Nasty Women Amsterdam, a fundraiser for women’s rights, and became involved in this worldwide Nasty Women movement that started in New York. As a painter, Airco is fascinated by death and murder, questioning the human nature. Why do people take another person’s life? Trying to figure out where the boundaries lie between love and hate, life and death. ‘Made in China’ is a project that drew a lot of attention; without knowing, 16 Chinese painters in China, each painted one part of the illegal portrait of the Dalai Lama. The 16 parts were brought together outside China as a symbol of peace and unity. Airco Caravan lives, sings and works in Amsterdam and New York.
