Diego Mazuera

1950 · Colombia

Artist biography

One of the leading abstract painters to emerge from Colombia in the latter half of the twentieth century, Diego Mazuera explores the potential illusions of space that are possible within a singular canvas.

Embracing the non-representational while also investigating the element of texture through the mixture of sand and pigment in some of his pieces, Mazuera creates in his work a space where narrative sits just at the periphery of the image: fields of color come together to convey certain atmospheres or spaces, yet Mazuera is careful to omit a specific locale. This limitation actually serves to pull the viewer deeper into Mazuera’ art, though, as it means that each member of his audience can bring what they wish to the work.

Born in Bogotá, Colombia, in 1950 Mazuera studied at Jorge Tadeo Lozano University as well as at the Conservatory of Book Arts in Barcelona, ​​Spain. He won first place in the National Artists Hall of Colombia.
