Jesus Leguizamo was born in 1975, in Colombia. He is a graduate of Fine Arts from the National University of Colombia with a specialization in portraits. His artistic preoccupation is focused on painting and the introduction of new plastic concepts in portraiture. His artwork is a contagion of the distortion caused by technology over the images of this epoch. Through these images Leguizamo depicts the loss of identity, the portrait as a form of knowledge around the human condition. Previous exhibitions include There and Now, London (2015); Nordart, Büdelsdorf (2015); The Seven Deadly Sins, London, (2014); Salon Nacional de Artistas, Bogotá (2006); Arte Joven, MAMBO (2005). Leguizamo’s work has been placed in several public and private collections internationally. He lives and works in Bogotá (Colombia).
