Exhibition Title: I,You,Us. United to transform
Date: November 6, 2020
An artistic examination of the self, others, and the collective experience of people of African descent, through the fresh eyes of a recent transplant. The one of a kind images allows the viewer to see the world in the unique way the artist gets to experience it.
What began as a personal journey coming from and Hispanic country Colombia and moving to the United States, end it up as one of the main reasons I decided to become an artist, the experiences of living in a new country with new people, expired me to look at culture in a distinct way.
My art translated into images of African descendant faces from different parts of the world and it represents power, strength, beauty, and many other, characteristics of black culture.
I seek to use various geometric shapes to explore key compositional elements, I use Bright colors harmonies and textures to visually engage the audience.
By emphasizing aesthetics and focusing on techniques and materials, I seduce the viewer into an unknown world of virtue and grace and often tells a story about the effects of global cultural interaction.
