Alina Carballo

Alina is the artist behind the artwork that ultimately brought the idea for Gnarwhal to life. We were introduced to Alina through one of alina's good friends that is a tattoo artist in Bali when we were visting 3 years ago. Once we got back to Los Angeles, we connected with Alina who now resides in LA with her husband Stephen Carballo, Her son Noah and their 2 adorable pups. Alina grew up in Russia and has had an interest in art from an early age. after attending school for fine arts, she began traveling for inspiration, work and general wanderlust. We are stoked to have Alina as a collaborator and her work can be found here:
