I am an artist based in Bogota – Colombia. I do art because is the only way I find a comfortable understanding of living. I use art to connect to the world. I do paintings because the language of color is my way to activate sensations and to move the emotional world. I believe that painting is something you may do with any material and on top of any surface, that’s why I create spatial paintings with accumulations’ of disposable materials, or painted objects, to create new perspectives or views on quotidian things and stuff from the world.
"Because of my love at first sight for a bakery in Tehran, I saw similarities between the bakery and my artist studio, were I work with porcelain, plaster and salt as a daily ritual.Aside from this, the Middle Eastern bakeries seem like a white wide space. You could almost be presenting a gallery space".
"If I had to give a brief description of my experience at the exhibition, I would say that I focused on the work and enjoyed the silence. And to MuHKA, it is fantastic how much thought has gone into creating a perfectly safe environment".
"The city of Antwerp reveals a totally different side of her that I’ve never experienced before. The first thing I noticed were the birds singing. They are much more present than before. People are more friendly and everybody says hello. I always see a city as an open air museum. Now I feel like a VIP who is visiting the most beautiful museum in the world after hours".

"I discover the poetic relation between old pages who have own their history and my imagery. Often, the story’s I draw are related to the text on the page. I like to interlace two tales related to the past together. The past is my source of inspiration, like the ancient drawings of the Abssy time in the 13th century, old fairy tales from east and west, and old mythologies".
