“I was born in Santiago de Chile and studied theater design and I like the area of theatrical makeup, develop self-taught bodypaint, because in my country there was a lot of information and learning new techniques also with friends from abroad. Currently have my site “CuerpoGris” as my nickname also know me in Chile, and have made “urban interventions” in Chile and Argentina with volunteers who want to experience the bodypaint, plus I offer my services to individuals and companies. I love photography. Also my assistant bodypainter is my own daughter little! Danae Carrizo ” - Claudia Carrizo
