Crajes is a duo formed by Carla Rendon and Jessica Ruiz with the constant encouraging of their two cats; Poe and Ingres.
They both dropped off their college studies of Psychology and Philosophy to pursue their dreams and start a career in the world of Fine Arts.
Their most known artworks are painting and drawing but they work on all kind of supports and art forms like: videoart, animation short-films, mural art, sculpture, …
Female figure is the focus of their art. Beauty and fragility of their work don't hide the more dark, grotesque and direct side of it.
