Carlos Tamayo

I was born in Cali, Colombia in 1988 and studied art at the Institute of Fine Arts. Colombia has been a country affected by drug trafficking wars over the last few decades; creating situations of conflict and tension in several regions within the country where guerrilla, paramilitary, and drug lords still have control and power. I am interested in investigating the mining regions in Colombia because they have survived these armed conflicts, giving birth and importance to mining-related labors with hopes and efforts of creating places of peace. Most of these regions go through extreme poverty due to the lack of education and better government infrastructure.

I feel very fortunate exploring this current body of work because it allows me to learn and share moments, stories, anecdotes, beliefs, interests, and food with a variety of people and cultures from the country that I call home. I have learned to see art as a way of documenting current social and cultural problems that affect my surroundings, keeping in mind that these are problems that affect not only Colombia but all of South and Central America.
