Camilo A. García A.
Visual Artist.
Bogotá, Colombia. 1993.
Based in Rotterdam. 

I’m a visual artist from Bogotá currently studying Experimental Publishing at Piet Zwart Intitute in Rotterdam.

My work usually starts with a question that prolonge itself trough images, books and objects. Questions are involved generally by the antitetic forces between Nature and Culture; Science and Magic; Knowledge and Ignorance. And how they change through time and context.

The projects principally aim to reflect and produce visual thought that could also be part of a dialoge with an interdidiciplinary scenario that collaborate with others in order to spread further.

Graphic thinking is a constant in my work, altough, everything could really happen in the process. Video, painting, installation, workshops, lectures...
