Project Description

Fabio Mesa

“My career as a professional artist started as soon as I left Bellas Artes “I felt that I wanted to do something different, which would identify me with my era. I thought about what I had lived through and remembered my time at school. At that time, I was very anti-establishment and very involved in social activism. That is how I developed the principal theme for my work, inspired by marches and protests against the Colombian government during the 1990s and the beginning of the 21st century. Later on, I began to conceptually focus on peace as the message in my work.” “In my work, crowds march toward common goals, which revolve around dreams that we human beings share as a society: the search for peace, the struggle for a better life.”
