Tahuanty Jacanamijoy

In his work, he speculates about the origin of certain daily practices, astrological events, or fictional stories. The scenes he draws arise from visions in conversations with sacred plants like Yagé, or from pictorial interpretations he makes of his multifaceted identity. This search have led him to recognize himself as the meeting place of different worlds, such as the tradition inherited from his father as an Inga and his mother as a Wayuu and Arhuaca, and the socio-economic and cultural hyperactivity that I experience as a man in the Colombian capital. The scenes that he captures on paper or canvas are allegorical stories that he decides to carry with a feeling of joyful melancholy to give a personal and unique meaning to the condition of the contemporary human being. Tahuanty Jacanamijoy has participated in exhibitions since 2014, including a solo show. He was recognized and awarded for his graduate work. He has a master's degree in animation from the Royal College of Art, London.
