"I was born with a pencil in my hand. I remember my mom taking my hand and we were drawing together. And I've drawn my whole life.”
For the Colombian artist, drawing is a daily activity that he practises rigorously in silence and solitude. Using watercolour, pencil, and ink drawings and etching, Suárez Londoño has produced a rich body of work spawning a sort of inventory of the world – a poetic and visionary diary composed of images, accompanied at times by miniscule hand-written notes in French, English or Spanish. Vases, maps, animals, intertwining figures, plants, mechanical forms, letters, numbered indices of bells and clouds, and dancers are only a few of the subjects that inspire his works.
