Born in Colombia in 1983. Graduated as a visual artist in 2007. I have committed myself to look at the world and learn from it through visual arts. Chance, mystery, surprise, experimentation, time, light, color, shades, feelings, stories, expressions, subjectivity, poetry... Some of the words that drift trough my head every day, from morning till dawn. My obsessions always have something to do with these words. Since I was around 9 I started enjoying the nice art history books my parents had at home. I can´t forget how striking was to see at first the dramatic Barroque paintings from Rembrandt, Caravaggio, La Tour and other old masters. Looking at them I wondered about these faces from centuries ago that seemed share the same space with me... They still strike me and make me want to do something in my own context and with my own hands.
As a visual artist, I work with different media such as photography, painting, drawing, ready mades and installations. As many others, I´m looking for new ways to underline and rethink what we see every day and sometimes overlook. With photography, I try to take "light prints" of moments, places and people I ran across, as a small poetic act. My interest is to stimulate the imagination of the viewer and to make us aware of the beauty of the everyday life instants, that are what life is really about. I try to make pictures from different people, that work in a similar kind of way as a mirror, for all of us that look at them. As a photographer, I try to make shadows and lights. As an artist I try to raise questions, not to give facts. I see the works of art as open windows to an infinite space, a unique universe that is always determined by the specific viewer that experience the piece of art and makes sense out of it.
