We Art Colombia Fall 2019
We ask questions encouraged by our curiosity.
We want to redefine the concept of Colombian artists and bring something completely new, fresh, abstract and eye catching to our audience.
As artists, we don’t focus on faults or mistakes. We aim to create new topics and provoke new questions through our art-form and ideas, derived from how each of us see’s the world in our own way.
We present a variety of mixed-media art works – loaded collages, graffiti inspired canvases using stencils, Toy art and sculptures, showcasing a combination of techniques and demonstrating what we live as artists.
As Colombian artists, the work criticizes certain aspects of Colombia and the rest of the world from a unique perspective, highlighting our evolution within the medium using light, color, shape, texture, feelings, landscapes, conflicts, hardship, life, death, war, poverty, wealth, freedom, love, pain, faith – all wrapped in what we could call our urban culture, and how it has grown to become a symbol of globalization and the internet.
OUR COLLECTIVE OF ART HAS EXPOSED IN DIFFERENT GALLERIES AROUND THE WORLD, CITIES AS NEW YORK, MIAMI, LONDON, BOGOTA, ROME and TOKYO (last summer).
49 artists have participated in 3 years traveling, This collective is created by the artist Juan Mantilla.
The era of hyper connectivity has served as a bridge connecting our inner world and as the impulse to bring our work to TOKYO.
There we aim to manifest free expression and title it:
‘WE ART COLOMBIA’
