Our third artist: José Garciá. Amazing trompe l’oeil. Everything is painted. Except the wood floor and the shelves… I wish I could use such a beautiful bicycle today, though. Because today, the 7th of February, it’s a day without car in Bogotá. What a brilliant idea!
To know more about José Garciá, visit his website.
Jaime Franco is a talented painter who is working around architecture. The colours he’s using are very interesting and he has a beautiful serie with gold paintings.
What I like in going to an artist’s studio is that you can have a glance at his personality. Maybe more than in his work itself.

I was very excited because I’ve been invited to visit Colombian artists. We went to this place close to La Candelaria called “Los Estudios Las Nieves”. This is a whole building where they (15 people) have their own wonderful studios. We were allowed to go in some of them and the artists were all welcoming and chatty with us.
Rodrigo Echeverri Calero
Let’s start with Rodrigo Echeverri who is doing amazing perspectives with wood. His work also seems to be inspired by geology, mountains and relief. You can find out more about his work on his website.
Following artist tomorrow!
Muchas gracias Claudia por el día tan lindo.
Love street art. And I am following this blog for more than a year: Street Art Utopia. They show street art from all over the world.
That’s where I found those nice images taken in la Candelaria, one of the most beautiful place of Bogotá with its colonial style.

There are a lot of graffitis like this in Bogotá.
Wag is a new art collective in Bogotá. Thursday night, they organised a happening in a house in refurbishment. My partner Mario is one of the artists and he made a timelap of the event. These are row images and video:
They don’t have website yet, but as soon as they do, I will mention it.
A couple of days ago, I made a post about the art exhibition “El fin del mundo”.
The artists planted a tree in front of the exhibition, which is in the park of the Virrey and they called it El árbol del fin del mundo. 4 days since the tree is planted and it is still there. Bogotá’s council didn’t do anything about it yet. That would be amazing if it could stay and get big…
I don’t see this happening in Victoria park…
Calle 88# 13a-35. Bogotá. Until the 22nd of December.
Just went to see an art exhibition in a house in refurbishment. The topic is: “the end of the world”. This exhibition was organised at the last minute but they managed to get the press and everything.
The soldier is Mario’s (my partner). I am pround!
