Christian Abusaid born 1980 in Bogota, Colombia and currently based in Mexico City is a transformative artist whose dogma revolves around ‘art for a new consciousness’.

 

His innovative technique creates a tactile experience through the use of textile pigments and voluminous textures. His pieces move us through a diverse colour gradient asking us where does beauty truely come from and does it exist by itself?
By doing so Abusaid pursues the greatest art enigma of all; beauty.

 

Abusaids’ pieces lead us into different degrees of understanding through the preservation of ancestral knowledge and pre Hispanic symbolism. Each piece touches on the infinite notion of human desire, which not only extends to the art world but also works to maintain and promote cultural and natural heritage.
