Lavamoatumbá / Spaces in-between
Galeria Casa Cuadrada / 26th March – 17th April
More than 60 international artists of different styles came together to create an exhibition in an abandoned house in Bogota, out of conventional art spaces
By representing Victorian pattern (acanthus leaf), traditionally painted on wealthy houses’ walls rather than spray painted in abandoned houses, the piece questions the idea that culture would be the prerogative of the wealthy.
The dual technique used here, spray painting with acrylic painting outlines, is characteristic of Colombian graffiti artists.
