Christian Jaramillo

Columbian, lives and works in Munich

Installation view

Paraiso 2017

Christian Jaramillo calls himself a cultural hybrid having been grown up Bogota, Colombia, before moving to Europe more than 10 years ago. His personal cultural experience is influenced from his indigenous ancestors, the European colonial ear as well as an African spirit coming to South America through their slavery. His already mixed cultural roots become even more multicultural while living in Europe study their art history. In his work, these influences become directly faced with each other, mixed and even hybridized. He uses repetitively certain symbols such as skulls, birds, flowers, or animals and introduces them into for instance a Renaissance-like Madonna background which is painted in soft pastel-like colors. His works either tell stories of historical value from his home country often carrying out a subtle criticism on the regime, the church, or even the population, or he points to the importance of nature and the animal world as a symbiosis important for life in general. But most interestingly is the perception of the viewer seeing a Madonna with a skull faces provoking almost opposed reactions depending on the cultural back ground of the viewer.
