Felipe Arturo

Born in 1979 in Bogotá, Colombia
Lives and works in Lisboa, Portugal

Felipe Arturo is an architect and artist born in Bogotá in 1979. His practice takes elements from fields in the proximities of urbanism, architecture and art in relation to politics, history, geography and economy. His works and projects are mainly sculptures, installations and videos departing from concepts like structure, sequence and matter. The work of Arturo is deeply influenced by vernacular architecture and construction techniques that reflect processes of assimilation and resistance to colonial and post-colonial processes.
