Felipe Arturo is an architect and artist born in Bogotá in 1979.
His practice takes elements from fields in the proximities of urbanism, architecture and art in relation to history, geography and economy. His projects are mainly sculptures, installations and videos departing from concepts such as structure, sequence or materiality. The artworks are based on traces of cultures of ancient and modern worlds that are manifested in contemporary culture as constructive techniques, vernacular architectures, formal and informal economies as well as language and its verbal, poetic and narrative formalizations.
Arturo completed a MFA at Columbia University in New York and is currently an associate professor at Universidad Tadeo Lozano, Bogotá. He had been invited to participate in solo projects at Arco, Madrid (2011); Art Basel, Miami Beach (2012), Artbo, Bogotá (2013), Maco, Mexico D.F. (2014), ArtRio (2014) and FIAC, Paris (2017), among others.
