Commissioned | New Talent

Why did you make this work:
Living in a country like Colombia, from a very young age we easily recognize what violence and conflict are. One of my greatest interests in the arts is to promote the construction of the country's historical memory, so as not to forget and not repeat.

How was the illustration used:
This project was an illustrated book for children, with texts written by migrant children and victims of violence.

How did you make this work:
This was a research project for the creation of an illustrated children's book commemorating the 20 years of the Bellavista massacre. Initially, a research and work was carried out with children who were victims of violence to extract the contents and stories of the book. Later some artistic explorations were made for the illustrations.
