Anibal Vallejo

Born in 1975 in Medellin, Colombia
Lives and work in Medellin, Colombia

My work focuses on the boundaries of painting and its possibilities.
Beyond the formal and conventional techniques I want to search new forms to be integrated into the process. My training as a plastic artist and fashion designer made me interested in elements outside the world of painting, which I try to bring into the work: threads, fabrics, jewelry, industrial embroidery and especially hand embroidery that has the intimate character which reveals the true essence of things; materials that are converted into plastic elements just as valid as the oil, acrylic, graphite or charcoal. The thread acquires special force because it rescues the gesture and plasticity of it with the value added of the tridimensional. Throughout this research of techniques I look forward to remain faithful to traditional painting.
