Born in Medellín, Colombia in 1955, José Antonio Suárez Londoño has practised drawing from a very young age.His mother taught him the basics of drawing simple things like a little house, a tree, a river and animals that represent (with the addition of a few others) what he has drawn throughout his whole life since then and until now. José Antonio Suárez Londoño started his art education in Geneva, Switzerland. There, he drew constantly for six years as well as experimenting with painting and etching.When he returned to Medellín, he was a teacher for 5 years and decided to consecrate all his time to drawing night and day during the week, a practise that would contiue for months and then year after year until the present day. In the 1980s, after filling small notebooks as a life project for some time, a curator in Bogotá saw his work and Londoño began being called for some groups and solo shows.After that, Londoño was invited to the Sâo Paulo Biennale, the MoMA bought some of his works, the Drawing Center in New York was interested in his work and the Venice Biennale also invited him to participate. José Antonio Suárez Londoño continues to draw everyday as much as possibile, continuing his long-established artistic practise of unwavering commitment to drawing, minute detail, and fantastical mental landscapes that are visibly expressed.
