These days the Eskayel studio is situated in the apartment just below the one Campanaro lives in, and it’s where she does all of her painting and designing. Her process always starts with the former, and she typically follows the same steps. “I usually start by doing a quick gesture drawing with a big brush that’s very wet,” she says. “Then I draw on top of that using water-soluble ballpoint pens before getting the whole thing wet again, so the ink from the pens bleeds. I like getting my paintings messed up first before I zero in on the final thing you’re meant to look at, so there’s a lot going on. I splatter them with paint, or splat them with water, so that I’m forced to take them further.”
