Walter Zuluaga Restrepo

With a number of successful global exhibitions under his belt, Walter Zuluaga is a force to be reckoned with in the world of Latin America’s Magic Realism. Born in Pereira, Columbia, he mastered his artistic technique at the city’s Academy of Fine Arts. He continued his art studies in Spain and cemented his growing fame with exhibitions in Madrid and Bilbao. His work is highly sought after by private collectors.

Over the years, Zuluaga’s art has evolved through a progressively unreal experience into modern realist paintings that display elements of fantasy or dream-like subject matter. Technically, this Magic Realism movement lies between Surrealism and Photorealism, with its subject often rendered with photographic naturalism.

Marta Isabel Ramirez

Marta Isabel Ramírez is an industrial designer and fine arts artist from Colombia. She considers herself a “glass thinker”, because her work is a hybrid between art, storytelling and design. By using a lamp-working technique, she allows the material to run freely, without any restrictions on the natural fluidity of the glass.

For Marta, glass in its primitive, organic and dynamic form, is an eloquent medium for self-expression. She also recreates the static moments of the moving water, allowing them to achieve their own nature. The result is a series of dancing shapes, suspended or resting, writing in the air or casting shadows on the ground.

Julio Cesar Parra

Julio Parra is a contemporary Colombian artist based in Medellín. His vibrant and rebellious style has resulted in him being coined the “Colombian Basquiat”. Parra’s effervescent scribbles and brushstrokes splashed against a lightly hued, often stark white backdrop creates a bold form of primitivism, showing a strong communicative message with elements of coded content within the work.

His paintings provide a lens through which to view capitalism, urban beauty and decay, and the social and economic inequality and exploitation in Latin American society. Parra’s work often depicts mundane items and consumer products working together in juxtaposition to socio-economically charged effigies.

Alvaro Daza

Alvaro Daza is a true pioneer in the Colombian art world. With over 100 global exhibitions, his bold abstract expressionist style is unmistakable. His works are dynamic explosions of colour, which mysteriously appear from magical landscapes. These explosions represent the beautiful formation of trees, which in turn represent life, freedom and longevity. Under the striking thick brushstrokes lies a strong message that we must take special care of our forests: the trees that give us life.

His work draws inspiration of something in-between reality and a surreal paradise: a true reflection of Colombia’s Magical Realism. Daza’s combination of linear shapes and curved brushstrokes does not create conflict or dichotomy, rather it unites both in peace and coherence. He brings light to the world.
