Oscar Muñoz, a lover of experimentation

Oscar Muñoz (1951-) is a Colombian painter and sculptor with a career spanning over 40 years, whose work is both local and universal. From a very young age, Oscar Muñoz developed a passion for drawing. When he finished school, he entered the Academy of Fine Arts in Cali (Colombia) with his sisters.

He began his career in the 1970s with his first exhibitions, including Dibujos Morbosos (1971). From then on, he was always on the lookout for original and innovative ways to represent his works. He has been successful, as evidenced by numerous exhibitions and awards, such as the Hasselblad Prize for Photography.

He culminated his career with the inauguration of the Lugar a Dudas exhibition space in Cali in 2006, of which he is co-founder and artistic director. Through this project, he aims to revive local culture by giving free access to the archive and library of the space, but also by hosting artists in residence and developing a laboratory for research and critical analysis of art.

Blending the local and the universal

Among his favourite subjects are the fragility of memory, identity and perception, as well as our relationship to and consumption of images. In particular, he questions the Colombian public media, which normalizes the climate of violence and shapes a political image determined by their personal interests. His themes, some general and some Colombian, make us describe his work as local and universal.

Techniques with porous borders

His works are the result of an original combination of different artistic techniques, such as drawing, photography, installations and engraving, while playing with different materials and textures. The subtlety of her artistic sensibility is reflected in works that are out of the ordinary.

This Biennial regular loves to constantly experiment with new processes and combinations to the point of blurring the boundaries. For example, he has produced works using ashes and water or steam. In photography, he has made his mark with a particular process of proto-photography. He became a master in the art of capturing the moment before or after the moment to be photographed. Today, his works can be found in important public and private collections.
