Ivan Loboguerrero is a Colombian artist who graduated in 1992 from the Universidad Nacional of Colombia. His work is characterized by managing an abstract environment which slowly transforms before the viewer’s gaze into a figurative work whose intention is to invite an encounter with spirituality.
In the words of the late distinguished poet and art critic Armando Álvarez Bravo:
“Loboguerrero’s paintings consist of two large planes. The first is like an evaporation, a nebula. It is fundamentally the subtle fabric of a foliage curtain behind which someone does something or gives himself to immobility. If that plot is fascinating in its nuances and when seen from a distance the work practically turns into an abstraction, no less fascinating is the protagonist who profiles and blurs his shelter.”
