About the guest:
Cesar Biojo (1981, Cali, Colombia) holds degrees in Fine Arts and Art History from Florida State University, and currently works on a Ph.D. in Art Research from the University of Barcelona. His works are oil portraits created from pictorial resources that are destroyed immediately leaving an evidence behind. This way the concept of time is introduced, connecting concepts inherent in the human being such as creation and destruction, the perishable and ephemeral. His work recovers in some cases post-impressionist styles, resulting in a personal language that makes his art project one of the most interesting in the contemporary scene. Taking as starting point the quote of Jean Paul Sartre, “The gaze of the other makes us aware of ourselves”, his work becomes an introspective study of human beings, their conflicts, their nature and existence. His work has taken part in a number of national and international exhibitions. He lives and works in Barcelona, Spain.
