Colombian artist Wilson Díaz (Pitalito, 1963) deals with his country’s sociopolitical, economic and historical circumstances by using found elements and images as well as reenactments that create a particular poetic of the real.

One of the crucial points of interest in Díaz’s wide-ranging art practice —involving music, performance, drawing, painting, video and photography— is exploring the root causes of conflicts and corruption.

Díaz is also constantly attempting to examine the different ways in which violence is represented on a day-to-day basis in the media, taking into account the barrage of propaganda and the various influences which different agents and forces associated with power can have.
