About the artists

She draws from a wide variety of electronic sounds and musical inspirations making for a dynamic sound that stands all on its own.
Her music and audiovisual art intersect and compliment each other, they are profoundly impacted by individual cultural roots while reconstructed to reflect her global internet-age upbringing.

Rants from a Stranger
Influenced by print, zines and comic books, comes this short publication that experiments with the idea of a ‘Graphic Novel’ without the presence of illustrated characters and relying solely on hand-lettering. Rants from a Stranger is a series of ‘Typographic Novels’ hand-lettered and written by Isabel Urbina while in Brooklyn, NY and Caracas, Venezuela.
