Jesus Leguizamo


Colombian artist Jesus Leguizamo works the oil portrait in his paintings, building and destroying the image of the person, his paintings are an allegory to the fragility of the human being. He takes the concept of “a painting” as a starting point where he denies the classic objective of the portrait to represent the face, distorts it to the abstract, here the matter of the oil and its expression is the most important plastic element.


He studied plastic arts at the National University of Colombia and is currently working in the city of Bogota and continues to explore the language of oil in large-format paintings. His paintings are in various private and private collections in various cities around the world.
