Camila Rodriguez

Camila Rodriguez Jimenez is a Colombian artist based in New York City who uses her interest in cultural anthropology and history to investigate the socio-cultural diversity of her country. She defies the colonial history by presenting imagery that challenges the traditional visual culture with folklore and colour. With each piece, she celebrates tradition as much as she exposes the hardship that accompanies it. By participating in Unwillingly Sazonado y Morado she wants to bring to light the overlooked narrative that sits behind the narrowed stereotypes of violence and the “exotic savage” around her identity.
