While in Colombia, I worked in several public art projects, mainly murals, both painted and mosaic, involved with educational projects working with homeless inhabitants of Bogotá and other vulnerable peoples of the city.
On Moving to England from Colombia in 1998, I Went to Chelsea School of Art and Design where I started a MA in Public Art, which I was disappointed with and decided to transfer to a different field of the arts.
After that I was given a bursary to study Computer Animation and Digital effects, I acquired a BA (Hons) and a Masters degree. Subsequently and parallel to painting, I had the opportunity to work several digital effects facilities, while at the same time keeping my art work production on track producing at least one painting exhibition per year. As part of my work on Visual Effect for films, I have worked in effects sequences for films that include:
“Harry Potter and the order of the Phoenix”
“The Bourne Ultimatum”
To name the best known. Having this experience with work in the Digital Arts has widen my understanding on the role of Painting in contemporary culture and given me new ways of seeing and understanding contemporary image.
I have been living and working in Vancouver – Canada, since 2010, where I have developed my most recent pictorial and photographic work.
