One of the most proposing and freshest names in the Latin American street art, is GLeo, a Colombian artist, born and raised in Cali, who express her identity and vision of global issues in colorful illustrations, oil painting and massive murals around South America and now days in capitals cities of street art, like Barcelona and Mexico City. Definitely a great promise of this discipline, how with her work is trying to be a reality.
In her pieces she blended the legends and worldview of the original cultures of her country, using pictorial references of animals to create surreal images and female characters carrying ornamentals masks with big eyes and tattoos, symbolism of power and wisdom in many cultures around the globe. Making a unique universe and visual language that begins to expand worldwide.
