from Itagüí/Medellín, Colombia. I began drawing each day on wood and paper with markers while studying film direction in Buenos Aires. At the age of 20, I decided to become an illustrator and began contributing to different publications from Argentina, Colombia, Mexico, Spain, and the United States, and later was awarded grants from artists’ residencies in he Republic of Korea, Austria and China, as well as national grants from Colombia, which supported my personal art projects in different towns in Venezuela and South Korea. While working as a freelance illustrator in different projects, I started to combine drawings with graphic design to create the visual identity of city-scale projects like the National Urban Forum of Colombia, the seventh session of the World Urban Forum, and the public bike system in Medellín. In 2014, I began working with the United Nations to create the image of different campaigns and events in more than 15 countries as part of the Habitat III Secretariat.
