Felipe Arturo studied both art and architecture, and completed his training in the studio of Colombian artist Doris Salcedo, known for her in situ installations and interventions in the public space. This experience proved significant, motivating him to develop memory devices to explore the natural and cultural processes of assimilation and hybridisation, issued from the history of colonialism. At the intersection of urbanism, architecture and visual art, the multidisciplinary body of work (installation, sculpture, video) that he has developed is an unexpected and poetic association of modern forms and materials with artisanal techniques and natural materials.
His creations have been presented in international art events, including: The Happiness of Objects, Sculpture Center, New York (2007); Now, Transformation Spaces, Casa del Lago de Ciudad, Mexico (2009); Beyond the Supersquare, Bronx Museum of the Arts, New York (2014). The artist has also held solo exhibitions in many international art fairs: Arco Madrid (2011); Art Basel Miami Beach (2012); ArtBo Bogota (2013); FIAC, Paris (2017).
