A LITTLE ABOUT ME
Hi there, I am a Colombian self taught artist, currently living and working in Vancouver, Washington.
''Do what you love and do it always'' that is, why I paint.
My artistic medium is mixed media on canvas.
ABOUT MY PROCESS
Each painting fuses the sketching of the subject with layers of collage, acrylic, ink, charcoal, spray paint and repetitive mark making that adds texture and depth.
My work is usually and foremost inspired by color and its delicious combinations, the vibrancy of my heritage and my daily work practice. In my paintings, you will find pieces of my childhood such as the religious imaginary I grew up with, elements of nature, my nostalgia for the old and the pleasure I find on being a story teller. I aim to use color and whimsical details to turn ordinary elements of our existence into a magical and joyful story.
Aiming to elevate the ordinary in thoughtful and often whimsical ways, my art is meant to inject more joy into our daily existence.
I would love to hear your thoughts about my work. Please feel free to leave your comments below and big thanks in advance!
