Jesus Leguizamo is an emerging artist from Colombia whose evocative paintings have won him prestigious awards throughout South America.

Painting portraits, the artist creates then destroys his subject through the material, he seeks to immortalize the medium of the portrait making, rather conversely than the portrait itself. Through expressive brushstrokes, he creates poignant works that explore human fragility and how this can be expressed in the medium of paint. His haunting paintings come across as intimate peeks into someone’s emotional state of mind or a memory that has begun to fade, leaving incomplete snippets in your mind.

Leguizamo has exhibited at galleries and fairs internationally including the Museum of Modern art in Colombia and the Unit Gallery London.
