Kukuli Velarde Barrionuevo (29 noviembre 1962) artista plástica, peruana.

Cultiva un surrealismo que se burla de la tradición y los emblemas. Su obra, hiper realista, es de una extraordinaria técnica. Pinta sobre aluminio y modela finas piezas de cerámica.

Sus personajes llevan el rostro de ella misma, Kukuli se auto retrata, interpretando así cada personaje que plasma.

KUKULI es una artista mayor, precoz, tiene estilo, genial dibujo, mundo propio y su voz plástica es atrevida y original.
