Oscar Muñoz Colombia

Oscar Muñoz (1951, Popayán) is a visual artist who uses unusual techniques and a fine aesthetic sensibility to create compelling artworks that interrogate paradoxes of the human image and the fragile and ephemeral nature of perception, identity and memory. Over more than 30 years, he has created an outstanding body of work that is simultaneously local and universal. In the Colombian context, his work questions the role of the image, its production and consumption through public media, in shaping a political reality that accepts persistent violence and war as daily routine.
