Behind the scenes of abstract and geometrical pieces by Paola Bencomo

Updated: Feb 13



Hello! My name is Paola Bencomo. I am a Venezuelan Graphic Designer. Since a young age I have been interested in the world of art, fashion and design, so I have always tried to be associated with projects of this kind. I recently started a personal project called @Kaneszavisual, where I have the desire to illustrate an abstract and geometrical visual journey.



How long have you been drawing or illustrating?


Drawing and coloring were always my favorite activities. I was also influenced by my older sister who studied architecture when I was a child. This allowed me to be in contact with different materials and techniques that I was trying to imitate.


“Be kinder to yourself and focus on what you really want. Be persistent and show what you do even when you don't feel comfortable”

When did you feel like you discovered your style? How did it happen?


As for discovering my style, it has been a long process, I think it is something that I have tried to perfect over time through new experiences. To be honest, I don’t consider it to be fully defined, I want to keep exploring. But I can highlight there are certain characteristics that have been prevalent in my journey, such as the preference for the female human figure and geometry.



How can you describe your style?


Geometric and minimal


Who or what inspires you to illustrate? Music? Books? Please list.


I am inspired to see the work of other artists and designers. I love discovering the infinite techniques and reasoning that can be used when creating something. Some of them are Malika Favre, Catalina Bustos, Damian Orellana, and Lisa Champ




Describe your creative process in several steps.


It depends on the type of project. Generally, the first part is based on knowing the determinants of the project. Investigating and specifying the characteristics that serve to develop the ideas. Then comes the part of creativity and sketching. Once these steps are complete the best proposals are chosen, developed, and perfected.


1. Research

2. Creativity

3. Choices

4. Improvement

5. Final Design


Which tools do you use to illustrate? Which one do you use the most?


To illustrate digitally I always use Adobe Illustrator.


What advice would you give to your younger self?


“Be kinder to yourself and focus on what you really want. Be persistent and show what you do even when you don't feel comfortable”




How do you see yourself in the future?


I envision myself expanding my academic training, exploring other formats and disciplines of design. Also developing my brand and creating my own products.


How can others find your work or connect with you?
