Ana Gonzalez Rojas


“At first I painted and drew just to practice the craft, because I know I have a knack for certain techniques. But later I understood that through them I could talk about important issues in Colombia: forced displacement, mining, deforestation. So little by little it took shape. Today I believe that my job as an artist is to socialize topics that I see can be told in a very poetic way. Sometimes words are not enough; The journalistic part—which is important—is not enough. Sometimes an image can say much more. A work can express much more. So, in that sense I believe in the transformative power of art.”
