Personal Adventure - Visual Art
I am originally from Ecuador. I earned a BFA and MA at The University of Art of London, Central Saint Martin (2018). These projects embody the silenced culture of the marginalised from individual victims of under-appreciation to the helpless indigenous continually colonised peoples of the Andes. They specify the absence, the oppression and the gap between the helpless and the powerful. Although abstract and open to interpretation, my works serve as testimonies on behalf of the marginalised, highlighting their values and believes. These projects reflect a personal effort to make the oppressed and disappeared culture known.
My awards include a commission from Clifford Chance, London (2020); the XIX Ceramic Prize, from the Madrid Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries, and Food (2007); and the XI April Salon Prize from the Riobamba Cultural Centre (1997). My work has appeared in important exhibitions in different countries including the UK, Belgium, Chile, Spain and Ecuador. I live and work in London, UK.
